Few local effects expected with federal shutdown

Posted: Thursday, Oct 3rd, 2013

WATSONVILLE ó As the country watches the federal government shutdown unfold, local officials from Santa Cruz County and school districts expect few effects locally.

However, economists are nervous that a prolonged stalemate will have a deleterious affect on an economy still reeling from the economic recession.

But thatís not to say there will be no effects from the first shutdown of the federal government in 17 years.

† The Santa Cruz County Workforce Investment Board, which oversees and delivers services in the community as Workforce Santa Cruz County, expects to receive $1.9 million in federal funding between Oct. 1 and June 30, 2014.†

That funding will not be available until U.S. lawmakers reach an agreement, which would impact job training services, vocational and career counseling and training services for job seekers.†

WIB also subsidizes wages for on-the-job training and helps to connect businesses with local, state and federal resources, all of which could see effects from the shutdown.
