Montana Legislative Council, Helena.
This report describes the study undertaken to implement a legislative resolution in Montana.

Public comment on the study's purpose, heard by the subcommittee at its first meeting, is summarized in this section. Part 2 presents a staff report on the state's primary job training program, funded by the federal Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), and Part 3 describes the Work Incentive (WIN) program, a federally funded effort to find employment for recipients of Aid to Families with Dependent Children. Part 4 describes a survey of Montana job training recipients, undertaken in the fall of 1985 and presented to the subcommittee at its third meeting. Part 5 presents "Project Work," a new training and job placement program for general assistance recipients, which was initiated during the interim. The conclusion presents proposed changes in Project Work and recommendations of the Job Training Coordinating Council. Appendices show the allocation of JTPA finds in Montana, discuss the legislature's role in JTPA administration, describe other states' job training programs for welfare recipients, and provide statistics on the first 3 months of Project Work.
