Tindall, Lloyd W.; And Others
This booklet, which is intended to provide ideas on how Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) funds can be used to serve disabled youth, lists and describes over 75 promising programs funded by the JTPA to provide vocational education, training, and employment services to handicapped youth. The following types of programs are described: State and local JTPA planning efforts, secondary and postsecondary school year and summer programming funded under Titles IIA and IIB of the JTPA, community-based programming, local and statewide JTPA vocational rehabilitation agreements and vocational rehabilitation programs, and other federally sponsored employment preparation programs for disabled individuals. Each program description includes some or all of the following: the name and location of the program, a statement of the program's scope, the name and address of a program contact person, a brief discussion of the focus of the program, a list of the characteristics of the target audience served by the program, a list of any documents generated by the program, an information contact, the name and address of the project grant recipient, and a discussion of significant features of the program. Appended to the booklet is a list of those States whose Governors have defined handicapped youth as "a family of one" for the purpose of establishing income eligibility requirements under JTPA. (MN)
