"J.1.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that noncredit business and industry work-related training courses and programs offered by community colleges be funded at a ratio of 30 percent from the general fund and 70 percent in nongeneral funds.  Out of this appropriation, $750,000 in each year from the general fund is designated for this purpose. These funds may be combined with funds of $200,000 per year already included in the Virginia Community College System budget for the "Virginia Works" program.  The funds will be allocated on a competitive grant basis, with criteria to include programs that serve small to medium-sized businesses, especially in regions where other education services, either public or proprietary, are not available

(This amendment provides general fund support for selected non-credit instruction programs. This amendment is a recommendation of House Joint Resolution 622, the Joint Subcommittee to Study Noncredit Education for Workforce Training in the Commonwealth.)
