Question:

No, however if a participant is enrolled in a TANF summer youth employment program, the participant should be assessed at the end of the program if enrolling in CCMEP would be beneficial to the participant. At that time the participant could be enrolled into CCMEP. (See Family Assistance Letter 183).

Answer:

Yes, they are two different services in OWCMS. An OST with ITA Training services for WIOA out-of-school youth may be provided by eligible training providers who receive payment for their services through an ITA. ITAs are established on behalf of the participant to purchase a WIOA-funded program of training services from eligible providers selected in consultation with the case manager. For participants that enter the program already enrolled in a postsecondary program, an OST is still applicable, however an ITA is not needed. This service is also for participants that enroll in postsecondary training while a CCMEP participant, but the training is funded by Pell grants, scholarships or other means that do not include CCMEP funding.OST can also be used if the training service is procured for a cohort rather than using an ITA for an individual.

Refer to
WIOA policy letter 15-10.
