Governance And Performance: The Influence of Program Structure and Management on Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Program Outcomes

Carolyn Heinrich and Laurence E. Lynn

JCPR Working Papers from Northwestern University/University of Chicago Joint Center for Poverty Research

Abstract: The Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), enacted in 1982 as a major initiative of the Reagan Administration, created what became a $5 billion federally-funded employment and training program for disadvantaged workers. The JTPA directs the states to provide services to "those who can benefit from, and are most in need of, such opportunities" and requires that the results "be measured by the increased employment and earnings of participants and the reduction in welfare dependency."
