Preparing Administrators and Faculty of Cuyahoga Community College for a More Active Role in Implementing the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA).
This five-part report discusses the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA), explains how it operates locally through the Cleveland Area Western Reserve Manpower Consortium (CAWRMC), and specifies ways in which Cuyahoga Community College (CCC) can play a greater role in the CETA system. Part I describes existing federal manpower legislation, including each of the eight CETA titles, the Work Incentive Program, the Economic Stimulus Bill of 1977, the Humphrey-Hawkins Full Employment Bill, and the Better Jobs and Income Program. Part II lists the manpower, employment development, supportive, and miscellaneous services which CETA provides. Part III: (1) outlines the administrative structure of CAWRMC; (2) discusses the problem of identifying the universe of need within CCC's service area, and those priority groups within this universe who are to receive CETA benefits; (3) presents the formula allocation for CETA funding at national and local levels; (4) lists the CAWRMC sub-contracting agents; (5) discusses the CETA client intake process; and (6) explains the process by which sub-contractors procure CETA funds. Part IV analyzes the strengths and weakness of CETA and CAWRMC, and Part V lists specific ways in which CCC can have a greater role in the CETA system. (JP)
