  2. Importance of WF-CTE • Workforce, Career, and Technical Education is absolutely essential in addressing the critical need for skilled workers in the 21st century economy. • A trained workforce is the key to attracting new industries to Mississippi, as well as to retaining and growing our existing industries.

Wet Funds • 2010-2013: .15 % of 1 % of the taxable wages (the first $14,000) are deducted for Workforce Education from the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund (UI). • 2013-2014: ($8,000,000 Governor’s one-time transfer) .22% of 1% of the taxable wages on the first $14,000 • Funds are collected by the Mississippi Department of Employment Security. • Legislatively required to carry over $2 million each year.

  11. $8 Million One-time Governor Transferthree Priorities

  12. 1. COLLABORATIVE CONSORTIA GRANTS • The fundamental priorities for the award of the grant funds are to expand use of multi-college consortia so that all community and junior colleges participate in a consortium. Consortia proposals are evaluated to determine funding. • Mississippi Corridor Consortium • Expand the Mississippi Corridor Consortium to include Coahoma, East Mississippi, Itawamba, Northeast Mississippi, and Northwest Mississippi Community Colleges; • Crossroads Consortium • Develop a consortium including East Central, Hinds, Holmes, Meridian, and Mississippi Delta Community Colleges; • South Mississippi Alliance for Workforce Solutions • Develop a southern consortium including Jones County Junior College, Copiah-Lincoln, Mississippi Gulf Coast, Pearl River, and Southwest Mississippi Community Colleges.

  13. 2. Equipment • Colleges have not received equipment funding since 2008. • Equipment request will be closely evaluated and approvals to purchases must align with programs and training delivered at each college. • The one-time $8,000,000 “Governor’s Transfer” into the WET Fund has allowed us some unique opportunities to strengthen programs and training delivery.  • The MCCB strongly encourages colleges to partner with business and industry on the use and purchase of equipment, and with the local secondary or post-secondary vocational centers for the use of equipment and classrooms. • Each college has up to a total of $289,298.00 to purchase equipment.

  14. 3. Yokohama Tire Corporation • At the request of MDA, MCCB committed $1,950,000 of the one-time transfer funding to the Yokohama Tire Corporation over a 5 year period. • These funds will be used for the screenings and assessments, pre-employment training, and post-employment training needed to meet the need for qualified workers for Yokohama. • MCCB continues to support projects serving new businesses locating within the state as identified by the Mississippi Development Authority.
