Job grant to target film work

Training to be conducted in production crafts and will be administered by the Los Angeles County Dept. of Community and Senior Services

Gov. Pete Wilson announced Monday a $282,000 job training grant that will provide classroom and hands-on training to at least 86 laid-off film production workers.

The training, to be conducted in production crafts, will be administered by the Los Angeles County Dept. of Community and Senior Services and overseen by trade professionals.

“In targeting this grant to the film industry, we’re making an important investment in a very important industry in California and to the local economy and the families affected by job layoffs,” Wilson said. “This grant will provide the laid-off workers with the training needed to place them in various production jobs based on the individual’s interest.”

Additional funds may be made available “pending clarification of other program costs,” the governor’s office said in a statement. Money for the grant is being drawn from a discretionary fund set up under the federal Job Training Partnership Act.
