Visdos, Robert J.; Malley, Mary R.
Designed to assist two-year colleges in increasing their level of involvement in the delivery of services under the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), this report describes the JTPA, reviews the role of two-year colleges in JTPA service delivery, and provides information on fiscal year (FY) 1991 JTPA funding availability and levels. Following a letter directed to potential community college service providers, section I describes JTPA legislation, reviewing the specific title authorizations and FY91 funding available for summer youth employment and training programs; employment and training assistance for dislocated workers; programs for Native Americans, and Alaskan and Hawaiian natives; training programs for migrant farm workers; and employment programs for veterans. Section II presents two United States Department of Labor fact sheets reviewing program highlights for the JTPA and the Economic Dislocation and Worker Adjustment Assistance Act (EDWAA). Section III contains a copy of a training and employment guidance letter from the Assistant Secretary of Labor which reviews the purposes of, background to, and guidelines for participation in the JTPA and the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) programs. Included in this section are reference materials and information on the JOBS program, including features that affect activities and responsibilities under the JTPA. In addition, this section provides policy guidance regarding the role that JTPA providers, the State Job Training Coordinating Councils, and private industry councils should play in JOBS. (JMC)
