CWI brought three basic requirements to identifying possible revenue streams to fund the workforce recruitment and retention incentives Wisconsin needs to be successful in the competition for workers.

1. Revenue streams should be sustainable and secure (i.e., financially secure and renewable).
2. Since a major objective of the undertaking is to protect state and local tax bases, funding worker recruitment and retention should strengthen not weaken or erode those tax bases.
3. Because both the public and the private sector benefit when the workforce is strong, investments in workforce recruitment and retention should be jointly financed with public and private dollars.
