California Workforce Investment Board Slingshot
Approximately $1 million has been infused into the San Joaquin Valley to fund several strategies. Fresno is serving as lead in collaboration with partners from community colleges, economic development, and employers in the manufacturing and construction/trades industries, to facilitate the needs of industry-related training, credentials/certificates, and career pathways, reciprocity of existing curriculum, and prior learning assessment and credit.

Proposition 39 Pre-Apprenticeship Support, Training and Placement Grant
Funds originally awarded to five of the WIBs have been expanded to include several additional WIBs in the CCWC, with Fresno as lead. The first cohort has been trained in Madera, in electrical, plumbers, pipefitters, sheet metal, ironworkers and truck drivers. Cohorts have been completed in other local workforce areas and scheduled by the other funded WDBs.
