We have had a cap on training costs for years.  It used to be $20,000
but is I think it is now $15,000.  We actually have a case pending the
Appellate Division involving a cap.  The issue, however, relates to the
provision of the regulations which allow the state to deny training if
the same training can be provided at similar costs.  The individual
originally requested training for a program that was above the cap but
was reduced to 19,999 by the college.  The problem was that another
State college cost less than a third that amount.  Has anyone had a
similar case involving a denial when a one program is substantially less
expensive than another?

Subject: [wiaattorneys] TAA Training Costs

Do your states put any cap on TAA training costs beyond the "reasonable
cost" limitations of 20 CFR 617?   

Sorry if you are getting this question twice, but I accidentally sent
the original email via the old UMass list serve and I am not sure if it
is even in service anymore.
