The Training and Employment Office, formerly
the State Manpower Planning Office, was created
by Executive Order on July 1, 1976, and was
renamed in 1979. An agency of the Department
of Human Resources, the Training and Employ-
ment Office administers appropriate sections of
the amended Comprehensive Employment and
Training Act (CETA) of 1978, P.L. 95-524.
CETA, as originally passed in 1973 and amended
in 1978, replaced in principle the expired Man-
power Development and Training Act (MDTA),
the Economic Opportunity Act (EOA), the Emer-
gency Employment Act (EEA), and the Coopera-
tive Area Manpower Planning System (CAMPS).
Created to serve the unemployed, underem-
ployed, and economically disadvantaged segments
of the general work force, the Comprehensive
Employment and Training Act provides funds di-
rectly to all eligible units of government (prime
sponsors) to implement employment and training
programs. Such programs include adult and
youth work experience, vocational classroom
training in demand occupational areas, public ser-
vice employment, summer youth employment, on-
the-job training in the private and public sectors,
and supportive client services such as outreach
and intake, client assessment and job counseling,
job development, and matching job applicants
with available positions. State government is the
prime sponsor for the counties of the Eastern
Shore and Southern Maryland. All other areas of
the State fall under the jurisdiction of local coun-
ty or city governments.
The Training and Employment Office has the
responsibility for meeting all federal grant appli-
cation requirements for the CETA program oper-
ated by the State prime sponsor and for imple-
menting the State prime sponsor programs at the
local level. As part of these requirements, the
Training and Employment Office provides staff
support for the Balance of State Planning Coun-
cil, which is appointed by the Governor. The
Council convenes to review and make recommen-
