The Education Department
Client Assistance Program
The Education Department has proposed new regulations for the Client Assistance Program, which provides support to states for programs that assist disabled clients to secure the benefits and services available to them under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The notice appeared in the Oct. 8 Federal Register; comments are due by Nov. 22.
The Education Department has published proposed regulations to implement the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1992, which modify the Rehabilitation Long-Term Training Program, a grant program that funds projects providing academic training in areas of personnel shortages. The notice appeared in the Oct. 8 Federal Register; comments are due by Dec. 7.
Proposed Selection Criteria
The Education and Labor departments are seeking comments on proposed selection criteria and priorities for funding school-to-work programs during fiscal 1994. The departments have proposed that priority be given to statewide planning and implementation grants. Although states are expected to fund local partnerships to carry out school-to-work activities, department officials have not determined how that would occur. The notice appeared in the Oct. 14 Federal Register; comments are due Nov. 15.
The Senate this month approved the nominations of Donald Wurtz to be the chief financial officer of the Education Department and Eli Segal to be the executive director of the Corporation for National Service.
