TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT GUIDANCE LETTER NO. 24-08
This purpose of this guidance is twofold. First, it provides guidelines for reporting performance accountability information for programs receiving additional funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). These programs include the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Adult and Dislocated Worker programs, the WIA Youth program, including summer youth employment, National Emergency Grants, and the Wagner-Peyser Act Employment Service, including the Reemployment Services grants.
Guidance on performance accountability will be issued separately for the following programs receiving resources under the Recovery Act: the Senior Community Service and Employment Program (SCSEP); YouthBuild; Indian and Native American Youth grants; Competitive Grants in High Growth and Emerging Industry Sectors; and Trade Adjustment Assistance.
Second, this guidance also announces changes to the reporting requirements for the Workforce Investment Act Standardized Record Data (WIASRD), which is submitted by states on all individuals served with WIA funds who exit program or One-Stop system services.
