State Financed and Customized Training Programs. Research and Evaluation Report Series.
Duscha, Steve; Graves, Wanda Lee
This document describes customized, employer-specific training programs for incumbent workers and new hires operated in 45 states. Unlike federal programs, state programs are economic tools to attract and retain jobs; are employer-, not worker-centered; have few requirements for targeting individuals; and train incumbent workers for new jobs or new job duties. Main issues facing state programs are identified. Following a 17-page narrative are 16 tables that illustrate national budget totals by year; top 10 states in total spending and per capita spending; change in incumbent worker training by state; characteristics of customized training programs, 1998-99; state programs funded by special VI-associated tax and tax increment bonds; state programs where colleges are the only training provider; spending by region; and budget comparisons for 7 regions. A section with state data provides a report for each state that includes 1998-99 budget and per capita spending; year program created; money for incumbent worker training and for new hire training; state overview; source of money; company and trainee targeting; typical training amounts; limits on training or project amounts; state program administration and staff; application process, training project administration, and providers; limits on types of training; and welfare-to-work training. Historical budget detail is provided. No information is provided for Montana, New Hampshire, and Wyoming. Only historical budget detail is provided for New York and Oregon. (YLB)
