Sounds like a great program but from what I have read the funds run out in September. This meeting is a little late.

I would have loved to have hired some help for my small business but only funding until Sept does not help at all!

This program has been in place since February 2010. Eight employer information sessions were held earlier this year. These last two sessions are for businesses who are interested in hiring an employee for project oriented work. It is our hope that the program will be extended by the federal goverment but that is, of course, outside of our control. For futher information you can contact the Tri-Valley Community Foundation at 925-734-9965.
