“The Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), enacted in 1982, established a nationwide system of job training programs administered jointly by state and local governments and the private sector. Title IIA authorizes training and services for economically disadvantaged individuals. Overhaul of the JTPA in 1992 established a new older worker set-aside at 5 percent of Title IIA adult worker funds. Dislocated workers receive employment and training help under Title III, the Economic Dislocation and Worker Adjustment Assistance Act (AARP, p.22)”
