Public Law 102-477, the Indian Employment, Training, and Related Services Demonstration Act of 1992 was amended to authorize Indian tribal governments to integrate employment, training, and related services. The Reno-Sparks Indian Colony 477 Program was established in 2001 to strengthen and improve the delivery of education, training, and employment services.
The following programs have been integrated into the RSIC 477 Program:
Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
Child Care Development Fund (CCDF)
Higher Education (HE)
Job Training and Placement (JPT)
Johnson O'Malley (JOM)
The goal and objective of the 477 program is to provide opportunities for tribal members and RSIC residents to reach self-sufficiency through employment, training, and education. Eligibility for the 477 programs requires that applicants be RSIC-enrolled members or be enrolled members of a federally recognized tribe and reside on RSIC lands. Additional eligibility requirements will be required depending on program requests.
