Administration of the Survey of Workforce Investment Act Services Provided to Youth with Disabilities for Local Workforce Investment Board Executive Directors
May 6, 2013

The Employment and Training Administration has alerted State Workforce Agencies and Local Workforce Investment Board (LWIB) Executive Directors about a study being conducted on services to youth with disabilities in the public workforce system.

Training and Employment Notice 32-12 contains this notice and encourages voluntary responses to the “Survey of Workforce Investment Act Services Provided to Youth with Disabilities.”  A combined effort of the Department of Labor’s (Department) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and Office of Disability Employment Policy, the primary purpose of the Survey is to get an analytical overview of services provided by local workforce agencies to this population. The responses to the Survey will be analyzed and used to gain a better understanding of how young people with disabilities are being served within the workforce system and to identify mechanisms for enhancing these efforts.

For questions specific to completing the survey, please contact Abt Associates, via e-mail at dolyouthwia@abtassoc.com or call 1-855-295-5528 (toll free).  For more information about the youth with disabilities study, please contact Gloria Salas-Kos in ETA’s Office of Policy Development and Research at 202-693-3596 or salas-kos.gloria@dol.gov.
