Dear Governor Brown and Members of the Legislature: We proudly present the 2015-2016 Annual Report of the California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley. This report begins where our 2014-2015 Annual Report concluded and covers in detail the numerous efforts the Partnership has made throughout the past year. We wish to thank the administration for its support - in particular, Jim Suennen, Associate SecretaryCommunity Engagement, Health and Human Services Agency, and Mona Pasquil, Appointments Secretary, Office of Governor Brown, for their assistance in filling vacant Board positions and working with the Board and stakeholders on issues of concern for the San Joaquin Valley. We want to thank our Board members for their commitment to the Valley by serving on the Board. Many of them greatly contributed to the continued success of the Partnership, and we honor and appreciate their contribution and countless hours of volunteer work. We are happy to welcome eight new members who joined the Board in the past year. The Partnership continues to build on already established programs and initiatives to connect and collaborate with public and private sector partners throughout the Valley to address the economy, the environment and social equity. This year, the Board adopted seven priority goals: Water Supply and Quality, Greenhouse Gas Reduction Funding, Higher Education, San Joaquin Rail Service, San Joaquin Valley Regional Industry Clusters Initiative (RICI), Broadband, and Health. RICI is one of our special projects and is now in its third year. This initiative connects workforce and economic development professional, community colleges, universities, and nonprofit/professional organizations with businesses in Manufacturing, Energy, Water Technology, Agriculture, and Health and Wellness. The Partnership, in cooperation with Fresno Business Council, held the second annual Manufacturing Summit in Fresno in March 2016. As a result of these efforts, the San Joaquin Manufacturing Alliance was formed to bring together manufacturers and public resource providers to address the needs of our manufacturers. The federal Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership (IMCP) designation called Central Valley AgPLUS is a 28-county region focusing on food and beverage manufacturing and emphasizes its federal investment within the region. The Partnership Secretariat is the lead applicant for the designation and the point of contact for the region. Partners in this effort include Chico State, Valley Vision (Sacramento) and Central Sierra Economic Development District. San Joaquin Valley Regional Broadband Consortium (RBC) established in 2012 is a Partnership initiative dedicated to accelerating the deployment, accessibility, and adoption of broadband within the San Joaquin Valley. RBC has completed the third year of its three-year California Emerging Technology Fund “Get Connected! San 2 CALIFORNIA PARTNERSHIP FOR THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY

Joaquin Valley” grant ($600,000). The program’s mission is to expand and advocate for broadband adoption in the Valley’s underserved urban and rural communities. To date, more than 2,000 new Internet adoptions have been documented in the Valley and 2,300 adults have been trained in Digital Literacy. The Partnership Board of Directors would like to express its appreciation to the Secretariat staff at Fresno State and all Valley stakeholders who have engaged in this regional effort. We would like to thank local and regional agencies, nonprofits, and those in the private sector that have given support through in-kind and financial contributions. We would like to thank the James Irvine Foundation and the U.S. Economic Development Administration for their financial support. The Irvine Foundation renewed its two year commitment to the Partnership in 2013-2014 and continues to be the only direct, specific funding received by the Partnership. We applaud their foresight in investing in this worthwhile effort. We also want to thank everyone who has contributed their time and expertise to our 10 work groups. Valley residents and partners should be encouraged by the connection, collaboration and advocacy in the past year. By working together to achieve the Valley’s potential as California’s 21st Century Opportunity, the Partnership continues to craft and implement a vision of the San Joaquin Valley which was not previously thought possible.

Executive Summary The Office of Community and Economic Development at Fresno State (OCED) is uniquely positioned as the Secretariat for the Partnership to serve the region and align university resources with San Joaquin Valley initiatives. OCED programs, communications and key relationships with internal and external stakeholders provide a platform for leveraging those resources. Partnership activities for the period July 2015 through June 2016 are highlighted in this section. ADMINSTRATION REPORT PARTNERSHIP BOARD The Partnership Board adopted seven new priorities with goals and implementation steps at their regular meeting in December. This is the second time that the goals established in the original 2005 Strategic Action Proposal have been reviewed and altered. The activities of the original 10 work groups will continue as before. However, the Partnership’s top priorities for 2016-2018 are Water Supply and Quality; Green House Gas Funding; Higher Education; San Joaquin Rail Service; Regional Industry Cluster Initiative; Broadband; and, Health. SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY HOUSING COLLABORATIVE The Partnership Secretariat serves as the coadministrative lead of the San Joaquin Valley Housing Collaborative (Collaborative), a 501c3 regional collaboration of public and private housing experts and stakeholders from the eight-county region that serves as a forum to identify, discuss, and address housing issues and challenges. The Collaborative held its fourth Affordable Housing Summit in Fresno in November. The Summit attracted more than 150 professionals from city, county and nonprofit organizations from throughout the Valley. The Housing Collaborative Board with representatives from each of the eight counties meets quarterly. SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY REGIONAL BROADBAND CONSORTIUM The San Joaquin Valley Regional Broadband Consortium (Consortium) received funding from California Public Utilities Commission to bring broadband infrastructure to unserved and underserved communities in the eight-county region. The Consortium is receiving $150,000 a year for three years. The Consortium has worked to address digital literacy and increased access to the internet through affordable subscription. Over the past year, 714 primarily disadvantaged individuals have received Digital Literacy Certificates from the Fresno State Parent University program. SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY REGIONAL INDUSTRY CLUSTERS INITIATIVE The San Joaquin Valley Regional Industry Clusters Initiative (RICI) got its official start in February 2013, with team members engaging champions for the seven identified clusters: Agriculture, Clean Energy, Health and Wellness, Logistics, Manufacturing, Public Sector Infrastructure, and Water Technology. RICI is directed by OCED staff. The economic and cluster analyses and the partner/ stakeholder engagement process provides a platform for the evolution of the Valley’s cluster initiatives; a framework to align initiatives and resources to capture value chain opportunities; and articulation of OCED‘s role to lead or support the clusters. 8 CALIFORNIA PARTNERSHIP FOR THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY

The Manufacturing Cluster held its second Manufacturing Summit in March. There were more than 500 attendees and 65 exhibitors. The success of the Summit and increased activity of the Cluster and the Fresno Business Council helped to create of the San Joaquin Valley Manufacturing Alliance. The Alliance is being run by Fresno Business Council with assistance from Partnership Secretariat staff. The Alliance has more than 400 members. The Energy Cluster worked the Sustainable Energy Roadmap program to help local jurisdictions set and pursue goals related to Water conservation, smart growth, transportation, land use and energy. Fourteen Valley jurisdictions signed up and participated in this program, receiving technical, tailored guidance. The Cluster hosted a Clean Energy Summit in Visalia. Community Choice Energy and clean transportation were among the topics of event breakout sessions. Scholarships were awarded to high caliber students choosing to pursue careers in clean energy and alternative fuels. Since 2014, the Cluster has awarded more than $25,000 in scholarships. CENTRAL VALLEY AGPLUS The leadership of Central Valley AgPLUS, the Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership (IMCP) designation, held their initial regional meeting in Sacramento in November 2015. The meeting brought together all the partners within the four regions - San Joaquin Valley, Greater Sacramento, Northern California, Central Sierra - encompassing 28 counties to discuss the goals and implementation steps for the designation and to establish Pillar Task Forces. Partnership staff led this effort in cooperation with Chico State, Valley Vision, and Tuolumne County Economic Development Authority. The Central Valley AgPLUS objective is to advance the region’s agriculturerelated manufacturing economy transforming raw goods into value-added products, and aligning effectively with other Partnership activities currently under way. The AgPLUS website was created and tracks the progress of the collaboration as well as amount of funding invested in the region. ANNUAL REPORT 2016 9
