People with Disabilities in Our Nation's Job Training Partnership Act Programs. Program Year 1989.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.; National Association of Private Industry Councils, Washington, DC.
This report is an analysis of available data on the participation of people with disabilities in the nation's Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) programs. Covering program year 1989, this report includes information about people with disabilities served by JTPA in every service delivery area (SDA) in the country. The narrative section briefly summarizes findings related to Title IIA terminees by state, Title IIB participants by state, Title III terminees by state, and Title IIA terminees by SDA. It suggests that there are probably two main factors in determining the number and percentage of the total population of individuals with disabilities served by JTPA programs on a state-by-state basis: involvement of organizations and unemployment rates. The narrative section also suggests strategies and resources that can assist JTPA administrators and organizations serving people with disabilities. An appendix contains four tables that provide statistical information about the number of youth and adults with disabilities served by JTPA Title IIA by state and by SDA and about the number served by JTPA Titles IIB and III by state.
