Grant Opportunity for Local Areas to Implement Individual Training Account (ITA) Approaches through the ITA Experiment
Oct 18, 2000
On Sept. 13, the U.S. Department of Labor, ETA, announced new grants totaling approximately $4.5 million. Approximately six grants will be awarded to local Workforce Investment Boards (Local Boards). Each grant award is estimated at $750,000. The purpose of this effort is to provide better information to State and local administrators as they determine the roles of counselors in the management of participant choices in ITAs; plan the allocation of staff and training resources to best meet their objectives; and strive for the continuous improvement of services under the Workforce Investment Act.
