The Performance Management Unit of the Office of Policy and Research maintains this "one-stop" website to post documents needed by workforce development professionals, program stakeholders, scholars, Congressional overseers and others interested in or requiring information about performance standards for the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Program serving disadvantaged adults and youth and dislocated workers.
Data from the Standardized Program Information Report for the Job Training Partnership Act. Public use files contain data on individuals who ended their participation during the most recent program years (July 1 to June 30). Each record includes information on characteristics at entry, services received, and outcomes attained for program participants in JTPA Titles II-A (disadvantaged adults), Section 204(d) (older workers), II-C (disadvantaged youth) and III (dislocated workers).
