The State Manpower Planning Office also
has the responsibility for meeting all Fed-
eral grant requirements and for implement-
ing all plans under the CETA Special Grant
to the Governor for vocational education
and statewide manpower services. Voca-
tional Education services for the Special
Grant are developed by the State Depart-
ment of Education and prime sponsors
through jointly developed non - financial
agreements. 'These non-financial agreements
are submitted to the State Manpower Plan-
ning Office for review and funding by the
Chairman of the State Manpower Services
Council. Generally speaking, vocational
services are classroom training in demand
occupational areas as needed in the local
labor markets. Funds for statewide man-
power service are also allocated under the
Special Grant to provide administrative or
client services, which are better served from
the State perspective. Frequently these funds
are utilized to fund experimental programs
or projects that will enhance the coopera-
tion and coordination of all manpower and
manpower related programs in the State.
As part of the Federal requirements of
the Special Grant to the Governor, the State
Manpower Planning Office also serves as
staff support to the State Manpower Serv-
ices Council. The State Manpower Services
Council replaced the defunct Maryland
Manpower Planning Council of the Coop-
erative Area Manpower Planning System
(CAMPS). This council is an advisory body
appointed by the Governor to review the
plans of all prime sponsors and manpower
and manpower related agencies and to make
recommendations on the coordination of all
manpower efforts in the State. The Chair-
man of the State Manpower Services Coun-
cil has been appointed by the Governor and
acts on his behalf to fulfill all Federal re-
quirements under Sections 206 and 207 of
CETA, Public Law 93-203.
In connection with its administrative role
of statewide programs, the State Manpower
Planning Office also has the responsibility
for all State public service employment po-
sitions provided under CETA to all State
agencies. The State Manpower Planning
Office enters into various contractual ar-

rangements for public service employees
with prime sponsors and makes arrange-
ments for the certification, recruitment and
selection of personnel, for the development
of appropriate State public service jobs, and
for the allocation of positions to State

The Jobs for Veterans Commission was
established October 29, 1971, by Executive
Order, under authority of Article 2, Section
24 of the Maryland Constitution. The Com-
mission was originally created on an emer-
gency basis in order to implement "Opera-
tion Thanksgiving", a concentrated publicity
effort in the Fall of 1971 wherein Maryland
employers were urged to hire returning vet-
erans. Since that time national support for
the Jobs for Veterans program has brought
the veterans unemployment rate closer to the
national average for comparable age groups.
Leading veterans organizations at their an-
nual conventions have urged continuing sup-
port to programs directly related to the Jobs
for Veterans campaign.
The Commission cooperates with and as-
sists the Department of Human Resources
in matters directly relating to the obtaining
of satisfactory employment for veterans. It
promotes and monitors programs and serv-
ices to veterans by the Maryland Veterans
Commission, the Maryland State Employ-
ment Service, the Department of Education,
and Veterans Representatives at the various
service centers within the State. The Com-
mission also monitors promotional cam-
paigns involving veterans. It solicits the en-
dorsement and participation of private busi-
nesses, as well as local, State and Federal
governments, in a program of priority hiring
of veterans, and promotes a greater public
awareness of the need to hire them.
Membership in the Commission is com-
prised of no fewer than 25 members ap-
pointed by the Governor, for one-year terms
subject to reappointment, plus five ex officio
