The Comprehensive Employment and Training Act. Impact on People, Places, Programs. An Interim Report.
Mirengoff, William; Rindler, Lester
Part of a larger study of the social, economic, and political effects of the new Federal approach to delivery of manpower services, this report covers the early transition period (January-April 1975) of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA--P.L. 93-203), which was the first in a series of proposed special revenue-sharing bills transferring control over a large portion of Federal revenues to state and local jurisdiction for flexible use in lieu of a variety of categorical Federal manpower programs. Methodology described for this phase of the study consisted of a series of interviews by 20 resident field research associates selected to follow the implementation and operation of CETA for three years in a sample of 28 units of government that encompass all types of prime sponsors (six cities, nine counties, nine consortia, and four states) and represent variations in population and degree of unemployment. Focus is on six substantive concerns in Title I (Comprehensive Manpower Services): (1) distribution of resources, (2) planning process, (3) administrative process, (4) arrangements for delivering services to program clients, (5) mix of manpower programs, and (6) type of people served. One chapter is devoted to each concern, each with a 2-page summary, and one chapter provides an overview of CETA in the context of decategorization and decentralization. A list of manpower acronymns, statistical tables, and a bibliography is appended. (WL)
