three approaches
Three Approaches
  • The Transitional Assistance Department (TAD) has three approaches for subsidizing employment for CalWORKs customers:
    • County/TAD administered for county agencies only.
      • Implemented in FFY 2004.
    • Workforce Investment Act (WIA) administered for private and public employers, under contract with TAD.
      • Implemented in FFY 2009.
    • Private/public sector administered for private and public employers, under contract with TAD.
      • RFP in progress, anticipate implementation in FFY 2010.
tad administered program
TAD Administered Program
  • Subsidized employment for CalWORKs customers was implemented by TAD in FFY 2004.
    • CalWORKs single allocation used to fund subsidies.
    • Limited to a small number of positions designated for this purpose (not “regular status” employees).
    • County agencies already engaged as Work Experience sites were targeted for this program.
    • Focus is on skill development; no expectation that county will hire upon completion of activity.
    • Now open to all county agencies, on a request basis.
  • Today there are about 400-450 filled positions.
tad administered program continued
TAD Administered Program,continued
  • FFY 2009 estimate $4.8 million
    • 500 filled slots/month increase by 4th quarter.
  • FFY 2010 Estimate $6.7 million
    • 500 filled slots/month for all quarters.
  • WPR (as an indicator of program cost/benefit)
    • Distance Learning pilot project cases = 84.67%

Note: Pilot project cases (261) were drawn exclusively from Subsidized Employment and Work Experience customers and WPR was NOT validated by the same methods used for reporting on the State sample.

    • Includes pre-employment paperwork and other requirements, such as backgrounds and physicals.

WIA Administered Program
  • TAD contracts with WIA to develop subsidized employment with private sector employers.
    • Employer is reimbursed at 130% of the position wage.
    • Subsidy is for 6 months (1040 hours maximum).
    • Employer pays for all drug/background checks and is responsible for Workers’ Compensation and insurance.
    • WIAhandles all employer communications/paperwork.
    • WIA invoices TAD monthly for wage reimbursement and administrative costs.

    • Contractor is reimbursed at 80% of the wage, benefits, insurance and administrative costs.
      • Administrative costs to be negotiated.

ab 4 and ecf impacts
AB 4 and ECF Impacts
  • AB 4 authorized use of AB 98 funding to meet the State’s FFY 2007 base expenditures on subsidized employment required to receive ECF funding.
  • The pending CDSS County Fiscal Letter is expected to confirm:
    • Counties with subsidized employment expenditures in FFY 2007 will receive an equivalent amount of their FFY 2009 and FFY 2010 base expenditures, funded at 100% with state general fund (SGF).
    • Counties that exceed their base expenditures in FFY 2009 and FFY 2010 will be reimbursed 80% of the portion that exceeds the base with ECF funds.
ab 4 and ecf impacts continued
AB 4 and ECF Impacts,continued
  • San Bernardino County base expenditures for FFY 2007 is $2.3 million.
  • County expects to get 100% of $2.3 million in FFY 2009 and 2010, and then 80% for expenditures beyond that amount.
