2022 Public Policy Agenda
The Job Opportunities Task Force (JOTF) advocates for legislative and budget proposals to improve the educational and employment opportunities for Maryland’s low-skill, low-income workers and families. Our public policy advocacy stems from a recognition that a healthy Maryland economy requires public policies that meet the workforce needs of employers and promote fair and equitable access to educational and employment opportunities for low-income Marylanders.
During the 90-day legislative session in Annapolis, JOTF will support the following public policy initiatives that promote access and eliminate barriers to education, training, and job opportunities for low-income workers and job seekers:
- ADULT, CORRECTIONAL EDUCATION/ POST SECONDARY EDUCATION / SKILLS TRAINING
- WORKER SUPPORTS AND BENEFITS
- DECRIMINALIZING POVERTY & RACE
