LATEST CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATES:
All city buildings are currently closed to the public except by appointment. Find more information and city-specific updates related to COVID-19 and Safer Racine here.
The City of Racine helps underemployed and unemployed residents gain access to employment opportunities through its Racine Works Program (RWP). The RWP certification is designed to promote the use of city residents as part of a contractor’s or developer's workforce on certain city-funded construction and
private development projects.
Contractors bidding on public works projects and development projects financed with public tax dollars must hire a percentage of RWP-certified City of Racine residents to work on those projects.
Contractors and developers are encouraged to refer to their contract/agreement to determine their project requirements.
Schedule an appointment with our certifying agency:
If RWP certification is granted, individuals will be issued a certification. While there is no longer an expiration date for RWP certification, the individual must continue to live in the City of Racine to remain RWP certified.
Certification becomes invalid if you move outside Racine city limits. If an RWP individual moves within the City of Racine, their RWP certification will need to be updated with the new City of Racine address.
Once WRTP certifies the individual, you do not need to contact the City of Racine.
