Division of Manpower Development and Training. , BAVT.
Information regarding programs under Section 241 of the Manpower Development and Training Act which provides training for redevelopment area residents is presented. Appropriations increased from $6,500,000 in 1965 to $24,000,000 in 1967. Training costs declined in 1964 and 1965 compared to 1963 but were doubled in 1966 because of an extension of the time for which training allowances could be paid. Equipment costs rose from 10.58 percent of the training costs in 1963 to 18.02 percent in 1966 due to equipping undeveloped programs and programs for highly skilled occupations. A total of 48,644 persons received training during the four fiscal years. New Jersey, Ohio, Mississippi, Puerto Rico, Pennsylvania, New York, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Washington, and Alaska had 69 percent of the trainees in fiscal 1966. The five predominant occupations in numbers of people trained were nurse aide and orderly, sewing machine operator, welder, machine tool operator, and clerk stenographer. During the first half of 1967 there was an increase in the number of proposals for on-the-job training programs, and more proposals included basic education. Training under the program is basically sound and is accomplishing its purpose of training unemployed and underemployed workers in economically distressed areas. Tables and charts illustrate the data. (EM)
