ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: This Notice announces States’ allotments for The Department of Labor (DOL or Department) for training and employment services as specified in the American Recovery and Reinvestment VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:17 Mar 18, 2009 Jkt 217001 Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) for activities under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA)—Workforce Investment Act Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth Activities Program Allotments; WagnerPeyser Act Allotments, and Reemployment Service (RES) Allotments. The funds for the allotments announced in this TEGL are part of the funds appropriated in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Public Law 111–5 (the Recovery Act), signed into law February 17, 2009. The WIA allotments for States and the final allotments for the Wagner-Peyser Act are based on formulas defined in their respective statutes. The WIA allotments for the outlying areas are based on a formula determined by the Secretary. As required by WIA section 182(d), on February 17, 2000, a Notice of the discretionary formula for allocating PY 2000 funds for the outlying areas (American Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Northern Marianas, Palau, and the Virgin Islands) was published in the Federal Register at 65 FR 8236 (February 17, 2000). The rationale for the formula and methodology was fully explained in the February 17, 2000, Federal Register Notice. The formula for PY 2008 is the same as used for PY 2000 and is described in the section on Youth Activities program allotments. Comments are invited on the formula used to allot funds to the outlying areas. DATES: Comments on the formula used to allot funds to the outlying areas must be received by April 20, 2009. ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to the Employment and Training Administration, Office of Financial and Administrative Management, 200 Constitution Ave., NW., Room N–4702, Washington, DC 20210, Attention: Mr. Kenneth Leung, (202) 693–3471 (phone), (202) 693–2859 (fax), e-mail: Leung.Kenneth@dol.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: WIA Youth Activities allotments: Evan Rosenberg at (202) 693–3593 or LaSharn Youngblood at (202) 693–3606; WIA Adult and Dislocated Worker Activities, ES final allotments, and WOTC allotments: Mike Qualter at (202) 693– 3014. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Labor (DOL or Department) is announcing Allotments for training and employment services as specified in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) for activities under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA)— Workforce Investment Act Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth Activities PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11751 Program Allotments; Wagner-Peyser Act Allotments, and Reemployment Service (RES) Allotments. The funds for the allotments announced in this TEGL are part of the funds appropriated in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Public Law 111–5 (the Recovery Act), signed into law February 17, 2009. Recovery Act funds for Training and Employment Services under WIA and the Wagner-Peyser Act are available for allotment as follows: • $1,188,000,000 for youth activities, including summer employment for youth; • $495,000,000 for adult services, including supportive services and needs-related payments. Priority for receipt of these services is to go to recipients of public assistance and other low-income individuals as described in 134(d)(4)(E) of WIA; • $1,435,500,000 for dislocated worker training and employment services and national reserve; and • $396,000,000 for Wagner-Peyser Act activities; $247,500,000 of those funds are to support RES for unemployment insurance claimants. The above figures represent the amount of Recovery Act funds as specified in the Act less one percent which is authorized to be retained at the Federal level for program administration and oversight. States are expected to spend Recovery Act funding quickly and effectively. WIA funding for Adults, Dislocated Workers, and Youth are considered to be PY 2008 funds and, therefore, must be expended by the end of PY 2010 (June 30, 2011). Wagner-Peyser funds are available for obligation by the States through September 30, 2010 and must be expended by the end of PY 2010 (June 30, 2011). It is the Congress’ intent, as well as that of the Administration, that the majority of these funds will be utilized within the first year of availability. The Recovery Act is intended to preserve and create jobs, promote the nation’s economic recovery, and assist those most impacted by the recession. It provides the U.S. Department of Labor and the public workforce investment system with unprecedented levels of funding for a number of employment and training programs to help Americans acquire new skills and get back to work. If the workforce system is to meet both the letter and the spirit of the law and fulfill its critical role in U.S. economic recovery, we must implement the Act expeditiously and effectively, with full accountability of our expenditure of funds. But the Recovery Act provides more than an injection of E:\FR\FM\19MRN1.SGM 19MRN1
