(a) (1) Programs and activities of the Job Development Incentive Training Program shall include a strong partnership with state and local economic development entities, workforce development agencies, community-based organizations, and the private sector. It is the intent of the Legislature that this program provide training on a no-cost or low-cost basis to participating employers who create employment opportunities at an acceptable wage level for the attainment of self-sufficiency by both of the following groups:

(A) Recipients of aid under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 11200) of Part 3 of Division 9 of the Welfare and Institutions Code.

(B) Clients determined to be eligible because they are employed at a wage too low to attain self-sufficiency.

(2) Guidelines for the determination of eligibility under this subdivision shall be developed by the chancellor’s office in consultation with the appropriate agencies responsible for collecting appropriate data. A structured career ladder methodology may be implemented in this program area.

(3) Funds received from other eligible programs, including, but not necessarily limited to, programs under the federal Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-220) and other applicable programs selected by the chancellor, or a combination of programs, may be used to provide funds to match job development incentive training funds.

(b) It is the intent of the Legislature that the expenditure of funds under this section should lead measurably to the upgrading of highly skilled and technical workers, upgrade opportunities for those who are employed at a wage too low to attain self-sufficiency, and the creation of jobs for new entrants into the workforce.

Annual appropriations for the Job Development Incentive Training Program may be allocated for the purposes of supporting eligible activities if, as a result of the workforce improvement services provided to employers, entry-level positions are created within the industry cluster. Participating employers may receive eligible services such as performance-based training, and other eligible services that stimulate productivity and growth in targeted industrial clusters on a matching basis. Any annual savings from this section shall be available for expenditure for purposes of the Industry-Driven Regional Collaborative Program.

(a) Create employment opportunities for recipients of aid under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 11200) of Part 3 of Division 9 of the Welfare and Institutions Code at an acceptable wage level to attain self-sufficiency.

(b) Create opportunities for individuals working at a low wage to upgrade to a wage adequate to attain self-sufficiency.
