SANTA FE, N.M. –The Job Training Incentive Program (JTIP) Board allocated $1.95 million in November to support 180 trainees and 2 interns, Economic Development Department Secretary Alicia J. Keyes announced today.

The most recent awards went to companies in Albuquerque, Moriarty, Roswell, and Santa Fe, supporting positions in solar energy, intelligent manufacturing, imaging, and even pet food processing. Thirteen companies received JTIP funding with salaries ranging from just over $14 to $52.50 per hour.
