SUBJECT : Guidance Concerning the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Amendments of l992 and the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills Training (JOBS) Program

  1. Purpose. To provide information to the JTPA system regarding the guidance which has been issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Administration for Children and Families to the JOBS community concerning the impact of the JTPA Amendments on the operation of the JOBS program.

  2. References. JTPA Amendments of 1992, P.L. 102-367; JTPA Interim Final Regulations published on December 29, 1992; Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) No. 6-89: TEGL No. 7-92; and The Family Support Act of 1988, P.L. 100-485 and 45 CFR Parts 250, 251 and 255.

  3. Background. The Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services continue to work closely together to enhance coordination between JTPA and JOBS. In April 1990, the Department of Labor issued TEGL No. 6-89, which provided a description of the major provisions in the JOBS regulations which impacted upon the JTPA program. With the passage of the JTPA Amendments and the publication of the JTPA Interim Final Regulations, DHHS, with concurrence from the Department, has issued the attached JOBS Program Information Memorandum (JOBS-ACF-IM-93-11), dated June 22, 1993. This information memo provides guidance to the JOBS system regarding the impact of the Amendments on administering various JOBS provisions in areas such as coordination, client flow, program activities, youth programs, and maintenance of effort.

  4. Action. JTPA Liaisons should transmit this information to all service delivery areas and other interested parties.

  5. Inquiries. Questions may be directed to Stephanie Curtis or James Wiggins at (202) 219-7533.
