|SUBJECT||:||Lower Living Standard Income Level Guidelines for 1998|
Purpose. To transmit 1998 Lower Living Standard Income Level (LLSIL) Guidelines. These guidelines are used in determining whether individuals meet the economically disadvantaged criteria set forth in the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA).
References. Public Law 97-300, Section 4(8) (JTPA).
Background. JTPA defines the term "economically disadvantaged" at Section 4(8) of the Act. Among other things the term means an individual who is a member of a family which has received a total family income for the 6-month period prior to application for the program involved which, in relation to family size, was not in excess of the higher of the poverty level determined in accordance with criteria established by the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, or 70 percent of the LLSIL.
The new Federal Poverty Income Guidelines were published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, February 24, 1998. The guidelines for the LLSIL were published in the Federal Register on Wednesday, May 6, 1998. Attached are copies of these 1998 guidelines. NOTE: The original Federal Register Notice for the LLSIL, Table 4, column five, fourth line should read 20,480, instead of 20,780. It has been corrected in the table attached to this TEIN and will be notated on the Internet.
Effective Date. States may implement these guidelines in accordance with the dates as published in the Federal Register or on such later date as the Governor may determine for JTPA programs in the State, but no later than July 1, 1998. In future years as well, States may implement guidelines in accordance with the effective dates published in the Federal Register.
Inquiries. Questions concerning this notice may be directed to Haskel Lowery or Annie Dorsey at (202) 219-5229.
