State Education and Coordination Grants: The Early Experience. The State Youth Initiatives Project, Working Paper #4.
Pritchard, May Long
This paper focuses on issues related to the management, goals, activities, and problems of the State Education Coordination and Grants set-aside of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA). (This provision places 8 percent of each State's total allocation for training for Disadvantaged Youth and Adults (Title II-A) under the authority of the governor to use in promoting coordination between education, employment and training, and other services.) The period covered is October 1983, through June 1984, the first official period of JTPA activity during which the basic structure for the new law was established. The twelve States included in the survey are: Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, and South Carolina. The paper is divided into nine sections: (1) Overview (provides a brief description of the goals and terms of the set-aside); (2) Agency Administration (examines the ways in which States have organized the management of the grant); (3) Methods of Distribution; (4) Target Groups; (5) Program Emphases; (6) Problem Areas (discusses some of the difficulties States encountered in the early implementation of the 8 percent grant); (7) Effecting Coordination (describes some innovative approaches to coordination adopted by States in the sample); (8) Conclusion (summarizes briefly the findings of this survey); and (9) State Profiles (highlights 8 percent policy and programming in each of the survey States).
