The Employment Training Panel (ETP) provides funding to employers to assist in upgrading the skills of their workers through training that leads to good paying, long-term jobs. The ETP was created in 1982 by the California State Legislature and is funded by California employers through a special payroll tax. ETP has a tripartite governing structure, with appointed Panel members representing business, unions, and state government. The ETP is a funding agency, not a training agency. Businesses determine their own training needs and how to provide training. ETP staff is available to assist in applying for funds and other aspects of participation.

This grant is open to non-profit Community Based Organizations (CBOs) with a deadline to submit a proposal by March 3, 2021 (3 PM PST). More information is posted in the February Press Release and on ETP’s Grant page here.
