What is it?
This bill would provide grants to States for on-the-job training programs for adults in economically disadvantaged areas. The bill designates an "economically disadvantaged area" as any zip code in which the average median income is less than $40,000 a year, with "extremely economically disadvantaged areas" being zip codes with a median income under $32,000. 25% of grants funds would mandatorily go to zip codes designated as extremely disadvantaged. State and local boards would apply for these grants.
The bill impacts on-the-job training programs in poor and very poor portions of the United States.
A CBO cost is currently unavailable.
