SUMMARY: Pursuant to 36 CFR 51.24, public notice is hereby given that the National Park Service proposes to award a temporary concession contract for the conduct of retail services (‘‘Services’’) available to the public visiting Pinnacles National Monument, California for a term not to exceed 16 months. The visitor services include the operation of a small convenience/grocery store. This action is necessary to avoid interruption of visitor services. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The temporary concession contract is proposed to be awarded to Damm Bros. Company, a qualified person. The store is currently operated under TC– PINN001–06, a contract that includes the operation of the adjacent campground. The owner of the current concession under TC–PINN001–06 has become ill and must terminate his contract before its original expiration date of March 15, 2008. Upon termination of TC–PINN001–06, the National Park Service will begin to operate the campground. However, the store will be operated under temporary concession contract TC–PINN001–08. The National Park Service has determined that a temporary contract is necessary in order to avoid interruption of visitor services and has taken all reasonable and appropriate steps to consider alternatives to avoid an interruption of visitor services. This action is issued pursuant to 36 CFR 51.24(a). This is not a request for proposals. Dated: March 21, 2008. Daniel N. Wenk, Deputy Director, National Park Service. [FR Doc.

SUMMARY: The Women’s Bureau (WB) and the Employment and Training Administration’s (ETA’s) Office of Apprenticeship (OA), U.S. Department VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:25 Apr 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 of Labor (DOL or Department), announce the availability of $1,000,000 to establish a grant program for the purpose of assisting employers and labor unions in the placement and retention of women in apprenticeship and nontraditional occupations. This program year 2007 SGA is authorized under the WANTO Act of 1992, Pub. L. 102–530, 29 U.S.C. 2501 et seq. To that end, the OA and the WB plan to disburse 2007 WANTO grant funds to three community-based organization (CBO)/registered apprenticeship program (RAP) consortia to conduct innovative projects to improve the recruitment, selection, training, employment, and retention of women in apprenticeships in the construction industry. Each CBO/RAP consortium must consist of a minimum of: (1) A construction industry RAP sponsor; and (2) a CBO (which may be a faith-based organization (FBO) with demonstrated experience in providing job training services (soft skills and some hard skills), placement, and support services to women for construction industry jobs. It is anticipated that awards will be in the amount of approximately $300,000. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This SGA consists of eight (8) sections: • Section I provides the funding opportunity description. • Section II describes the size and nature of the anticipated awards. • Section III describes applicant eligibility criteria. • Section IV outlines the application submission and withdrawal requirements. • Section V describes the application review information. • Section VI outlines additional award administration information. • Section VII lists the Agency Contact. • Section VIII provides other information, including acronyms and definitions. I. Funding Opportunity Description A. Background The WANTO Act of 1992, Pub. L. 102–530, 29 U.S.C. 2501 et seq. authorizes DOL to disburse technical assistance grants to promote the recruitment, training, and retention of women in apprenticeship and nontraditional occupations. The WB and OA co-administer the WANTO program, and have the responsibility for implementing this grant process. B. Purpose The WANTO Act’s purpose is to provide technical assistance to PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21651 employers and labor unions (E/LU) to encourage employment of women in apprenticeships and nontraditional occupations (A/NTO). One of the means of providing technical assistance is through competitive grants which focus on conducting innovative projects to improve the recruitment, selection, training, employment, and retention of women in apprenticeships in the construction industry. WANTO grants are awarded to CBOs, which may include faith-based, union-related organizations and employer-related nonprofit organizations, among others, to provide technical assistance to RAP sponsors. DOL has found that placement and retention of women in A/NTO pose significant challenges. For example, on average, only three percent of all newly registered and active apprentices in construction occupations are women. Approximately 75 percent of all registered apprenticeship programs are in the construction industry. Therefore, the Department is focusing this notice on registered apprenticeship opportunities for women in the construction industry. From 1994 to 2002, DOL funded WANTO grants annually to CBOs and FBOs that delivered technical assistance to employers and labor organizations to prepare them to successfully recruit, train, employ and retain women. The outcomes of these prior WANTO grants consisted largely of training and resource manuals, as well as recruitment videos. The numbers of women placed in registered apprenticeships through WANTO grant activities were lower than expected. Therefore, the PY 2007 WANTO grants are intended to help connect women with the significant employment opportunities available in registered apprenticeship programs in the construction industry. Additionally, to ensure women served by these PY 2007 WANTO grants have access to a full range of supportive services and training, as well as specific employment opportunities, this SGA requires applicants to demonstrate establishment of a consortium consisting of CBOs and RAP sponsors whereby the employers and RAP sponsors will be responsible partners for placing women into their programs. RAPS are any person, association, committee, or organization operating an apprenticeship program in whose name the program is registered or approved. For the purposes of this notice, all apprenticeable occupations in the construction industry meet the definition of nontraditional occupations (NTO). E:\FR\FM\22APN1.SGM 22APN1
