Federal budget affects North Central

February 24, 2012

Several key provisions of President Barack Obama's fiscal year 2013 budget could have adverse effects at the North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission [NCPRPDC].
Obama reportedly recommends what North Central executive director Eric Bridges calls "roughly stable funding" for the Workforce Investment Act [WIA] core formula accounts for adult, youth and dislocated workers' programs.
Adult employment and training could see a decrease of $1.4 million from fiscal year 2012; likewise, youth employment and training could dip $1.5 million and with the budget plan requesting just over $1 billion for dislocated worker employment and training, that line item could see a decrease of $1.9 million.
