Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 20504-20505 [E9-10323]

Download as PDF 20504 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 84 / Monday, May 4, 2009 / Notices 1998. WIA section 168 amended the training programs made available to veterans (see 29 U.S.C. 2913). WIA section 168 authorizes the Department of Labor to make grants to meet the needs for workforce investment activities of veterans with serviceconnected disabilities, veterans who have significant barriers to employment, veterans who served on active duty in the armed forces during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized, and recently separated veterans within 48 months of discharge (under conditions other than dishonorable). Veterans who received a ‘‘dishonorable’’ discharge are ineligible for VWIP services. Priority of service for veterans in all Department of Labor funded training programs is established in 38 U.S.C. 4215. VWIP grants are intended to address two objectives: (a) To provide services to assist in reintegrating eligible veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force; and (b) to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex employability problems facing eligible veterans. Projects that support the President’s commitment to ‘‘Green Energy Jobs’’ and propose a clear strategy for training and employment in the renewable energy economy, are considered unique and innovative and will receive priority consideration. The full Solicitation for Grant Application is posted on http:// www.grants.gov under U.S. Department of Labor/VETS. Applications submitted through http://www.grants.gov or hard copy will be accepted. If you need to speak to a person concerning these grants, you may telephone Cassandra Mitchell at 202–693–4570 (not a tollfree number). If you have issues regarding access to the http:// www.grants.gov Web site, you may telephone the Contact Center Phone at 1–800–518–4726. Signed at Washington, DC, this 27th day of April 2009.
