Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
The current role of the Department of Labor's Manpower Administration as determined by the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA) is described. CETA shifts the responsibility for training and job placement services from the Federal government to States, cities, and counties which operate their own programs using funds provided by the Federal government. The community manpower system includes about 400 comprehensive manpower programs and additional public service employment programs for areas of unusually high unemployment. Eligibility requirements, services provided, and the operation of these programs are outlined. Other programs are provided for groups with special job market disadvantages (seasonal farmworkers, Indians, youth, older workers, and persons with limited English). The Federally administered programs described are: apprenticeship, job corps, and the work incentive program. Research, development, and evaluation functions of the Manpower Administration's Office of Policy are discussed. Finally, a summary of the historical development and services of the employment service and the unemployment insurance program, both operated as Federal-State partnerships, is provided. The report also contains an address list of Assistant Regional Directors and suggestions for obtaining more information on community manpower programs. (MS)
