SECTION .0100 ‑ DESIGNATION OF SERVICE DELIVERY AREAS

 

 

04 NCAC 20B .0101          DESIGNATION OF SERVICE DELIVERY AREAS

(a)  The Governor, after recommendations from the State Job Training Coordinating Council, designates service delivery areas, including the Rural Service Delivery Area, to promote the efficient delivery of job training services throughout the state, consistent with the requirements of Section 101 of JTPA.

(b)  The Rural Service Delivery Area includes units of government that did not individually or in combination with any other units of government seek or qualify for designation as a service delivery area other than as a unit of government within the Rural Service Delivery Area.  The Rural Service Delivery Area was designated to facilitate the provision of employment and training services to citizens of those units of government.

(c)  Requests or petitions for designation as a service delivery area must be timely received by the Director, according to schedules published by the Director.  Requests or petitions must be approved by the State Job Training Coordinating Council, where necessary, in compliance with Section 101 of JTPA.

(d)  The right to designation as a service delivery area under Section 101 of JTPA may be forfeited in the event that subgrant funds are grossly or abusively misappropriated, or the activities are grossly or abusively maladministered.  The Governor reserves the right, after procedures required herein, to determine that the designation of a particular service area would not serve the best interests of the residents of the area and would not protect the integrity of funds that the state may be liable to recoup to USDOL in the event of misexpenditure.
