Linking Employment and Training Programs with Economic Development. A Review of the 1978 Comprehensive Employment and Training Act and Administrative Regulations and Other Relevant Federal Legislation and Programs.
White, Susan J.
Interest in encouraging linkages between economic development efforts of various federal agencies with the job development and training activities of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) led, in 1979, to the development of an interagency effort, the Employment Initiatives Program, and the signing of six interagency agreements with the Department of Labor. Current legislation permits but does not require such linkages. This paper reviews the statutory authorizations for linking economic development activities with employment and training programs under the CETA Amendments of 1978, together with the federal regulations implementing the Act issued in the Federal Register of May 20, 1980. It also reviews the authorizations for economic development contained in the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, the United States Housing and Economic Development Act of 1976, the United States Housing Act of 1937, the Small Business Investment Act of 1958, the Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1976, the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act of 1972, and the Revenue Act of 1978. Some examples of local collaboration between CETA and other federal programs are included to illustrate practical applications, while a review of the bilateral ageements between the Department and other federal agencies is also included. The documents spelling out the agreements are contained in the report's appendixes. (KC)
