A Statewide or local private nonprofit entity that receives an award under category 2 of this SGA may not receive sub-grant or sub-contract funding from a national organization that receives an award under category 1. For the purposes of this SGA, the term ‘State’ means each of the 50 States of the United States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories as defined in Section VI.B.’’ 3. Section III.E.1, ‘‘Participants Eligible to Receive Training’’: (page 30156) Is revised to clarify that individuals with disabilities are among the populations that can be served through grants awarded through this SGA by replacing the language designated below as ‘‘old text’’ with the language designated as ‘‘new text,’’ as follows: a. Old Text—‘‘Projects may also serve individuals with a criminal record; and populations that have not traditionally been employed in construction and skilled trade occupations, such as women and minorities.’’ b. New Text—‘‘Projects may also serve other types of individuals that may not be a part of the categories above, such as: individuals with a criminal record; individuals with disabilities; and populations that have not traditionally been employed in construction and skilled trade occupations, such as women and minorities.’’ 4. Correction to formatting of ‘‘Other Eligibility Requirements’’ section: The ‘‘Other Eligibility Requirements’’ section of the SGA is currently listed as section ‘‘D. Other Eligibility Requirements’’ on p. 30155. The section was formatted incorrectly, and the SGA is revised so that the ‘‘Other Eligibility Requirements’’ section is now listed as ‘‘C. Other Eligibility Requirements’’ instead of ‘‘D. Other Eligibility Requirements’’. With this correction, ‘‘Other Eligibility Requirements’’ is now correctly listed as Section III.C. of the SGA. 5.

Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA) Amendment One; State 
Energy Sector Partnership (SESP) and Training Grants

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration (ETA, Labor).

ACTION: Notice: Amendment to SGA/DFA-PY-08-20.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Employment and Training Administration published a 
document in the Federal Register on June 24, 2009, announcing the 
availability of funds and solicitation for grant applications (SGA) for 
State Energy Sector Partnership (SESP) and Training Grants to be 
awarded through a competitive process. This notice is the first 
amendment to the SGA and clarifies items related to: (1) Updated 
Attachment 1--Counties Impacted by Automotive-Related Restructuring; 
(2) the number of parts to the technical proposal (Section IV: 
Application and Submission Information, Part 2 Technical Proposal); (3) 
the number of sub criteria to the Strategy and Project Work Plan 
criteria in Section V.A.3); (4) participants eligible to receive 
training (Section III.D.1); and, (5) Section B on Green Industries and 
Occupations (Supplementary Information). The document is hereby 
amended.
    1. Attachment I--Counties Impacted by Automotive Restructuring. 
This notice replaces ``Attachment I'' as referenced on p. 30127-30128, 
which is a list of 281 counties impacted by automotive-related 
restructuring from the Center for Automotive Research. In addition to 
the 281 counties, an additional 31 counties have been included on the 
list due to an inadvertent omission on the original list. This is the 
complete and final list and there will be no further changes to this 
list. Accordingly, the ``old'' Attachment I on p. 30127-30128 is being 
replaced by the ``new'' Attachment I below:
