The State of California released Subsequent Eligibility Review Information Notice WSIN20-27. Subsequent Eligibility Review (SER) is required per WSD15-07, attachment 1. This notice and policy require Local Areas (SDWP) to review ETPL Training Providers on an annual basis for eligibility and compliance. 

SDWP and the State of California will be reviewing documents and data in CalJOBS for Continued Eligibility. Current Training Providers must ensure they have required performance data entered in CalJOBS. Providers will be asked to submit Continued Eligibility documents to SDWP and staff may also conduct a monitoring of each provider/program during this period. 

The open review period for updates and changes to active programs will begin May 1st and close on June 15th, with the new funding allocation and program year beginning on July 15, 2021. 

New Programs and New Providers can apply to be on ETPL at any time throughout the year.
