New Mexico has one of the most generous training incentive programs in the country. The Job Training Incentive Program (JTIP) funds classroom and on-the-job training for newly-created jobs in expanding or relocating businesses for up to 6 months. The program reimburses 50-75% of employee wages. Custom training at a New Mexico public educational institution may also be reimbursed.
The New Mexico State Legislature created JTIP, formerly known as the Industrial Development Training Program, or “in plant training,” in 1972. Since then, JTIP has supported the creation of more than 44,000 jobs for New Mexicans in nearly 1,400 businesses across the state.
Annual Public Meeting
New Mexico’s Job Training Incentive Program (JTIP) has provided support to the state economy and expanding New Mexico businesses for nearly 45 years. The program’s success is due, in part, to careful adaptation to changes in the New Mexico business climate. The JTIP board reviews program policy annually to ensure the program’s effectiveness in creating new jobs for New Mexicans and in helping local businesses expand.
