Background: The USIBWC operates and maintains the Presidio Flood Control Project (FCP) located along the Rio Grande within the city of Presidio, Texas. The FCP extends approximately 15.2 miles, from Haciendita, upstream of the Rio Conchos confluence, and ending downstream of Presidio near Brito Creek. In September and October 2008, the Presidio FCP levees sustained major flood damage from overtopping, under-seepage, and erosion. The USIBWC intends to repair a 3000-foot section of levee near Station 7+000 that is susceptible to under-seepage and possible levee failure. The USIBWC will remediate the levee failure by constructing a slurry-trench cut-off wall.

ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, in collaboration with the Department of Education, announces that eleven states are eligible to apply for Workforce Investment Act (WIA) (Pub. L. 105–220, 29 U.S.C. 2801 et seq.) incentive grant awards authorized by section 503 of the WIA. DATES: The eleven eligible states must submit their applications for incentive funding to the Department of Labor by June 25, 2009. ADDRESSEE: Submit applications to the Employment and Training Administration, Office of Performance and Technology, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Room S–5206, Washington, DC 20210, Attention: Karen Staha and Gail Sather, Telephone number: 202–693–3995 (this is not a toll-free number). Fax: 202–693–3490. E-mail: staha.karen@dol.gov and sather.gail@dol.gov. Information may also be found at the ETA Performance Web site: http://www.doleta.gov/ performance. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Eleven (11) states (see Appendix) qualify to receive a share of the $9.7 million available for incentive grant awards under WIA section 503. These funds, which were contributed by the Department of Education from appropriations for the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, are available for the eligible states to use through June 30, 2011, to support innovative workforce development and education activities that are authorized under title IB (Workforce Investment Systems) or title II (the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA)) of WIA, or under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV), 20 U.S.C. 2301 et seq., as amended by Public Law 109–270. In order to qualify for a grant award, a state must have exceeded its performance levels for WIA title IB and adult education (AEFLA). (Due to the lack of availability of PY 2007 performance data under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998 (Perkins III), the Department of Labor and the Department of Education did not consider states’ performance levels under Perkins in determining incentive grants eligibility.) The goals included employment after training and related services, retention in employment, and improvements in literacy levels, among other measures. After review of the performance data submitted by states to the Department of Labor and to the Department of Education, each Department determined for its program(s) which states exceeded their performance levels (the Appendix at the bottom of this notice lists the performance of each state by program). These lists were compared, and states that exceeded their performance levels for both programs are eligible to apply for and receive an incentive grant award. The amount that each state is eligible to receive was determined by the Department of Labor and the Department of Education, based on the provisions in WIA section 503(c) (20 U.S.C. 9273(c)), and is proportional to the total funding received by these states for WIA title IB and AEFLA programs. The states eligible to apply for incentive grant awards and the amounts they are eligible to receive are listed in the following chart: Amount of award State 1.
