SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In FY 2019 DOL’s ODEP funded a four-year cooperative agreement for CAPE-Youth. CAPE-Youth is focused on supporting state efforts to align state workforce systems to establish pathways toward careers and financial self-sufficiency for youth and young adults with disabilities (Y&YAD). The ultimate goal of CAPEYouth is to improve transition and employment related outcomes for Y&YAD through the identification and dissemination of evidence-based practices. To achieve this goal, CAPEYouth is implementing a rapid cycle research strategy with three primary steps: (a) Identify the needs of workforce systems; (b) conduct research and policy analysis that will help address those problems; and (c) based on the findings of research and analysis, develop and disseminate resources to policymakers and key stakeholders. CAPE-Youth is supporting Y&YAD in three main focus areas: 1. Youth and adult workforce systems collaboration; 2. Professional development for youth workforce practitioners; and 3. Career pathways and work-based learning such as apprenticeships programs for Y&YAD. DATES: E:\FR\FM\24NON1.SGM 24NON1 75040 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 227 / Tuesday, November 24, 2020 / Notices In order to support the needs of state policy makers as they work to implement the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and improve employment outcomes for Y&YAD, CAPE-Youth will be conducting several studies, which will require data collection through surveys, focus groups, and interviews. They are as follows: A. State Collaboration Research—This study uses a mixed method approach to understand collaboration across WIOA partners serving transitioning youth in 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. In Phase 1, state and local agencies serving youth and young adults will provide data through an on-line survey tool. In Phase 2, up to 10 purposively selected states with a focus on WIOA partners including state systems that support developmental disabilities (DD), mental health, juvenile justice, Foster Care, education, and other impacted systems will participate in 48 focus groups to provide detailed qualitative information on collaboration practices. B. Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) Implementation Study—This study also uses a mixed method approach. During Phase 1 of this study, Directors of State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies under WIOA in 50 states, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marianas and the District of Columbia will provide data on the implementation of Pre-ETS for youth using an on-line survey. In Phase 2 of this study, 25 total State VR staff in up to 5 purposively selected States will participate in .5 hour qualitative interviews to provide detailed qualitative information on the implementation of Pre-ETS for youth with mental health conditions. C. Study of Professional Development for Youth Workforce Practitioners—This study also will utilize a mixed-methods approach including a survey and focus groups. ODEP will survey a purposeful sample of 300 youth workforce practitioners throughout the country that serve youth and young adults with disabilities. This data from this survey will help identify key topics for discussion in 10 focus groups with 10 youth workforce practitioners. These focus groups will help gather the perceptions of core competencies required to effectively support youth and young adults with disabilities to obtain employment and how to implement meaningful professional development for practitioners. ODEP will use the data collected through these research efforts to identify how states are implementing aforementioned provisions of WIOA, challenges associated with implementation, and promising practices. CAPE-Youth will disseminate this research through briefs, reports, tools, and technical assistance to state policy makers focused on improving employment outcomes for youth and young adults with disabilities. This information collection is subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). A federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless the OMB approves it and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL seeks PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) years.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In FY 2019 DOL's ODEP funded a four-year 
cooperative agreement for CAPE-Youth. CAPE-Youth is focused on 
supporting state efforts to align state workforce systems to establish 
pathways toward careers and financial self-sufficiency for youth and 
young adults with disabilities (Y&YAD). The ultimate goal of CAPE-Youth 
is to improve transition and employment related outcomes for Y&YAD 
through the identification and dissemination of evidence-based 
practices. To achieve this goal, CAPE-Youth is implementing a rapid 
cycle research strategy with three primary steps: (a) Identify the 
needs of workforce systems; (b) conduct research and policy analysis 
that will help address those problems; and (c) based on the findings of 
research and analysis, develop and disseminate resources to 
policymakers and key stakeholders.
    CAPE-Youth is supporting Y&YAD in three main focus areas:
    1. Youth and adult workforce systems collaboration;
    2. Professional development for youth workforce practitioners; and
    3. Career pathways and work-based learning such as apprenticeships 
programs for Y&YAD.

[[Page 75040]]

    In order to support the needs of state policy makers as they work 
to implement the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and 
improve employment outcomes for Y&YAD, CAPE-Youth will be conducting 
several studies, which will require data collection through surveys, 
focus groups, and interviews. They are as follows:
    A. State Collaboration Research--This study uses a mixed method 
approach to understand collaboration across WIOA partners serving 
transitioning youth in 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of 
Columbia. In Phase 1, state and local agencies serving youth and young 
adults will provide data through an on-line survey tool. In Phase 2, up 
to 10 purposively selected states with a focus on WIOA partners 
including state systems that support developmental disabilities (DD), 
mental health, juvenile justice, Foster Care, education, and other 
impacted systems will participate in 48 focus groups to provide 
detailed qualitative information on collaboration practices.
    B. Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) Implementation 
Study--This study also uses a mixed method approach. During Phase 1 of 
this study, Directors of State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies 
under WIOA in 50 states, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, American 
Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marianas and the District of Columbia will 
provide data on the implementation of Pre-ETS for youth using an on-
line survey. In Phase 2 of this study, 25 total State VR staff in up to 
5 purposively selected States will participate in .5 hour qualitative 
interviews to provide detailed qualitative information on the 
implementation of Pre-ETS for youth with mental health conditions.
    C. Study of Professional Development for Youth Workforce 
Practitioners--This study also will utilize a mixed-methods approach 
including a survey and focus groups. ODEP will survey a purposeful 
sample of 300 youth workforce practitioners throughout the country that 
serve youth and young adults with disabilities. This data from this 
survey will help identify key topics for discussion in 10 focus groups 
with 10 youth workforce practitioners. These focus groups will help 
gather the perceptions of core competencies required to effectively 
support youth and young adults with disabilities to obtain employment 
and how to implement meaningful professional development for 
practitioners.
    ODEP will use the data collected through these research efforts to 
identify how states are implementing aforementioned provisions of WIOA, 
challenges associated with implementation, and promising practices. 
CAPE-Youth will disseminate this research through briefs, reports, 
tools, and technical assistance to state policy makers focused on 
improving employment outcomes for youth and young adults with 
disabilities.
