JTIP Proposal Submission

The JTIP Board must approve a company proposal for funding before any JTIP eligible trainees begin work.  Trainees who begin work before board approval are not eligible for JTIP funding.  The following summary is an overview of the process for submitting a proposal.  JTIP staff is available for assistance during proposal development and review.

The JTIP online application and supporting documentation are what make up the complete proposal. Instructions for the online application, access to the JTIP application portal and a complete Online Applications & Proposal Guide is provided upon determination of company eligibility.

  1. Board meetings are generally held on the second Friday of each month.  The alternate date, which is used when a meeting on the second Friday is not viable (a quorum cannot be achieved, holiday, etc.), is the third Friday of the month.
  2. The proposal must be submitted to JTIP staff at the New Mexico Economic Development Department four weeks before the JTIP Board meeting at which the proposal will be considered for funding.  Early submission is required to allow JTIP staff time to review the materials and request clarification or additional information if needed. Proposals are finalized within about two weeks of submission.
  3. Finalized proposals are made available for online board review about 10 days prior to the board meeting date.
  4. A company representative is asked to attend the board meeting to make a brief presentation (about five minutes) and to answer questions or concerns from the board. 
  5. The board makes the funding decision at the meeting. Companies which are approved are free to begin hiring from that day forward.
