For PY 2017, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 waives the competition requirement, and the Secretary is using the discretionary formula rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2017 funds for the Outlying Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of Palau, and the United States Virgin Islands) that was published in the Federal Register at 65 FR 8236 (Feb. 17, 2000).

The formula that the Department of Labor (Department) used for PY 2017 is the same formula used in PY 2016 and is described in the section on Youth Activities program allotments.
