The Indian Vocational Education Program (IVEP) supports American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and tribal organizations that provide secondary and postsecondary vocational education programs for the benefit of Native Americans. This booklet provides summaries of 41 projects funded by IVEP in 1999-2000. These projects offer postsecondary-level certificate or degree options and have the ultimate goal of providing training that leads to job placement or further education for youth. A brief program overview covers purpose, legislative authorization and federal program administration, federal funding, leadership and technical assistance, and collaborative efforts with other federal agencies that provide services to Native Americans. IVEP staff are listed with contact information. Each project summary contains the following information: grantee name, type of institution, project title, award number, project director and contact information, years funded, current award period, federal funds awarded this year, federal project officer, project objectives, vocational education training areas, projected outcomes, educational level of participants, available student support services, number of project sites, partnerships and collaboratives, and accreditation status. IVEP training areas are listed, and a map illustrates site locations. (SV)
