Section 188 of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act of 1972, as established under 29 CFR Part 75, authorizes the United States Department of Agriculture to make or guarantee loans or grants to finance industrial and business activities in rural areas. The Secretary of Labor must review the application for financial assistance for the purpose of certifying to the Secretary of Agriculture that the assistance is not calculated, or likely, to result in: (a) A transfer of any employment or business activity from one area to another by the loan applicant’s business operation; or, (b) An increase in the production of goods, materials, services, or facilities in an area where there is not sufficient demand to employ the efficient capacity of existing competitive enterprises unless the financial assistance will not have an adverse impact on existing competitive enterprises in the area. The Employment and Training Administration within the Department of Labor is responsible for the review and certification process. Comments should address the two bases for certification and, if possible, provide data to assist in the analysis of these issues.

Background. On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the Recovery Act into Law. Part of the Recovery Act, the TGAAA reauthorized and made substantial changes to the TAA program. The TGAAA amended Section 236(a)(2)(A) of the Trade Act to increase the cap on TAA training funds from $220 million to $575 million annually in both FY 2009 and FY 2010 and capped training funds for the first quarter of FY 2011 (October 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010) at $143,750,000, consistent with a projected annual allocation of $575 million under the expected reauthorization of the Act. The TGAAA further amended Section 236(a)(2)(B) and (C) of the Trade Act to: • Require 35, rather than 25 percent of the training funds to be held in reserve; • Provide for a ‘‘hold harmless’’ of 25, rather than 85 percent; • Set timelines for the distribution of training funds; and • Establish specific formula factors that the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) must consider in making those distributions. The final regulations that govern these provisions, 20 CFR 618.900—618.940, went into effect April 2, 2010, with the publication of 20 CFR 618 ‘‘Trade Adjustment Assistance; Merit Staffing of State Administration and Allocation of Training Funds to States; Final Rule.’’ Although the Recovery Act reauthorized the TAA program and raised the cap on training funds, it did not appropriate any funds for the TAA program. Rather, the Consolidated Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009, Public Law 111–8, appropriated TAA administrative and program funds to the Federal Unemployment Benefits and Allowances (FUBA) account. The FY 2010 distributions of funds under TEGL 9–09 were FUBA appropriations. The E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1 jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES 79420 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 243 / Monday, December 20, 2010 / Notices FY 2011 distributions will also be FUBA appropriations. Therefore, separate tracking and reporting requirements, which apply specifically to Recovery Act funds, do not apply to the TAA funds provided to the States from this and future FUBA appropriations. However, as discussed in TEGL No. 22–08, the TGAAA established new reporting requirements specific to the TAA program to increase the transparency and accountability of the program. ETA issued additional guidance on those requirements in TEGL No. 6–09, ‘‘Instructions for implementing the revised 2010 Trade Adjustment Assistance Trade Activity Participant Report (TAPR).’’ Funding amounts for each State are based upon TAPR data that each State submits quarterly. 4. FY 2011 TAA Training Fund Distribution Process. As noted above, the TGAAA increased the cap on TAA training funds from $220 million annually to $575 million for both FY 2009 and FY 2010. Under current authorization, this cap is set to expire December 31, 2010 and revert back to the $220 million level. However, there is a possibility that the higher cap will be reauthorized through FY 2011. With this in mind, two attachments have been prepared for this TEGL showing the State Initial Allocations for FY 2011. The first shows the initial allocations with reauthorization at the $220 million level and the second attachment shows the initial allocations with reauthorization at the $575 million level. For FY 2011, an amount equal to 65 percent of the annual training funds is initially distributed to States by formula and 35 percent will be held in reserve as required by the amendments and 20 CFR 618.910—618.930. A. TAA Formula Funds: The initial allocation of 65 percent of training funds among the States will follow the four factors set forth in the new Section 236(a)(2)(C)(ii) of the Trade Act and explained in 20 CFR 618.910(f): 1. Trend in number of workers covered by certifications during the most recent four consecutive calendar quarters for which data are available; 2. Trend in number of workers participating in training during the most recent four consecutive calendar quarters for which data are available; 3. Number of workers estimated to be participating in training during the fiscal year; and 4. Estimated amount of funding needed to provide approved training to such workers during the fiscal year. Factor 1 will be established using the most recent four quarters (FY 2009 Quarter 4 through FY 2010 Quarter 3) of VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:18 Dec 17, 2010 Jkt 223001 data for certified workers by State, and the quarters will be weighted 40 percent; 30 percent; 20 percent; and 10 percent, respectively, from the most recent to the earliest quarter. This approach will establish a trend, giving the most recent quarters a greater impact on each factor than an earlier quarter will have. Factor 2 will be established using the most recent four quarters (FY 2009 Quarter 4 through FY 2010 Quarter 3) of data for workers participating in training by State, and the quarters will be weighted 40 percent; 30 percent; 20 percent; and 10 percent, respectively, from the most recent quarter to least recent quarter. As with Factor 1, this approach will establish a trend, giving the most recent quarters a greater impact on each factor than an earlier quarter will have. Factor 3 will be determined by dividing the weighted average number of training participants for the State determined in Factor 2 by the sum of the weighted averages for all States and multiplying the resulting ratio by the projected national average of training participants for the fiscal year, using the estimates underlying ETA’s most recent budget submission or update. Factor 4 will be calculated by multiplying the estimated number of participants in Factor 3 by the average training cost for the State. The average training cost will be calculated by dividing total training expenditures for the most recent four quarters by the average number of training participants for the same time period. Once each of the four factors has been determined for each State, under 20 CFR 618.910(f)(3) all four factors will be assigned an equal weight. For FY 2011, the weight will be 25 percent of the total for each factor. Section 236(a)(2)(C)(iii) of the Trade Act includes a hold harmless feature. The statute now provides that a State’s initial allocation be at least 25 percent of the amount the State received in its initial allocation for the prior fiscal year. This requirement is codified at 20 CFR 618.910(c). ETA will determine the national total and each State’s percentage of the national total for each factor. Using each State’s percentage of each of these weighted factors, ETA will determine the unadjusted percentage that the State will receive of the amount available for initial allocations. As provided in 20 CFR 618.910(c), (d) and (e), allocations under $100,000 will be removed, and the statutory 25 percent hold harmless factor will be applied, resulting in an adjusted FY 2011 allocation for the remaining States. If the program is PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reauthorized at the $575,000,000 level, the percentages for all the States will total 100 percent of $373,750,000, which is 65 percent of the training cap. If the program reverts back to the $220,000,000 level, the percentages for all the States will total 100 percent of $143,000,000, which is 65 percent of the training cap. In those instances where the formula approach would give a State less than $100,000, 20 CFR 918.910(e)(2)(i) provides that that State will not receive any initial allocation, but may, where needed, request TAA reserve funds in accordance with the procedures described in Section B. The initial allocations for each State are attached. B. TAA Reserve Funds: Funds will not be distributed under the funding formula until the funding situation becomes clearer. Until that time, States may request reserve funds. Reserve funds will be distributed to States in accordance with 20 CFR 618.920 on an as-needed basis to provide monies to those States that experience large, unexpected layoffs or otherwise have training needs that are not met by their initial allocation. These funds must be requested using the ETA–9117 (OMB No. 1205–0275). In order to be eligible for TAA reserve funds, a State must demonstrate that at least 50 percent of its training funds have been expended or that it needs more funds to meet unusual or unexpected events. A State requesting reserve funds also must provide a documented estimate of expected funding needs through the end of the fiscal year. That estimate must be based on an analysis that includes at least the following: • The average cost of training in the State; • The expected number of participants in training through the end of the fiscal year; and • The remaining funds the State has available for training. C. Job Search and Relocation Allowances: States may also request job search and relocation allowances for adversely affected workers who have no reasonable expectation of obtaining suitable employment within their local commuting areas. These funds must also be requested using the ETA–9117 (OMB No. 1205–0275) and may be submitted at any time or in combination with a request for reserve training funds. D. TAA Program Administration Funds: States will receive an additional 15 percent of all supplemental allocation and reserve funds for program administration, as provided by Section 235A(a)(1) of the Trade Act. Not more than two-thirds of these additional E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 243 / Monday, December 20, 2010 / Notices funds may be used to cover administrative expenses, and not less than one-third of such funds may be used for the purpose of providing employment and case management services, as provided by Section 235A(a)(2) of the Trade Act. Guidance is provided in TEGL No. 22–08. If the 2009 Amendments expire, this limitation will change, and additional guidance will be provided. The administrative funds will be included each time funds are obligated to States by ETA. The program administration allocations for each State are also included in the attachment. E. Employment and Case Management Services Funds: Each State that receives FY 2011 TAA funds will receive $350,000 for the purpose of providing employment and case management services to TAA participants, as provided by Section 235A(b)(1) of the Trade Act. A State that does not receive the $350,000 for case management services because it received no initial allocation will receive those funds if it subsequently receives a reserve funding allocation. 5. Recapture of TAA Funds. Consistent with the FY 2011 TAA Annual Cooperative Financial Agreement, ETA may recapture any funds distributed to any State in the same fiscal year as they were given if it determines that the State will not expend the funds, but only after consultation with, and appropriate notification to, State officials.

SUMMARY: The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the U.S. 
Department of Labor is publishing, for public information, notice of 
the issuance and availability of TEGL 13-10 entitled, FY 2011 State 
Initial Allocations and the Process for Requesting Additional TAA 
Program Reserve Funds, signed on November 17, 2010, by Jane Oates, 
Assistant Secretary for the Employment & Training Administration.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chris Meservy, 202-693-2806.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 State Initial Allocations and the Process for 
Requesting Additional Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program Reserve 
Funds

    1. Purpose. To provide States with the formula methodology used in 
developing the FY 2011 initial allocations and to describe the process 
for requesting additional TAA program reserve funds for training, job 
search, and relocation allowances.
    2. References. The Trade and Globalization Adjustment Assistance 
Act of 2009 (TGAAA) (Division B, Title I, Subtitle I of the ``American 
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009'' (Recovery Act), Public Law

Appropriations Act, 2009, Public Law 111-8 (enacted March 11, 2009);

Final Rule,'' (75 FR 16988- 17002, April 2, 2010); TEGL No. 6-09, 
``Instructions for implementing the revised 2010 Trade Adjustment 
Assistance Trade Activity Participant Report (TAPR)''.
    3. Background. On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the 
Recovery Act into Law. Part of the Recovery Act, the TGAAA reauthorized 
and made substantial changes to the TAA program. The TGAAA amended 
Section 236(a)(2)(A) of the Trade Act to increase the cap on TAA 
training funds from $220 million to $575 million annually in both FY 
2009 and FY 2010 and capped training funds for the first quarter of FY 
2011 (October 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010) at $143,750,000, 
consistent with a projected annual allocation of $575 million under the 
expected reauthorization of the Act. The TGAAA further amended Section 
236(a)(2)(B) and (C) of the Trade Act to:
     Require 35, rather than 25 percent of the training funds 
to be held in reserve;
     Provide for a ``hold harmless'' of 25, rather than 85 
percent;
     Set timelines for the distribution of training funds; and
     Establish specific formula factors that the Employment and 
Training Administration (ETA) must consider in making those 
distributions.
    The final regulations that govern these provisions, 20 CFR 
618.900--618.940, went into effect April 2, 2010, with the publication 
of 20 CFR 618 ``Trade Adjustment Assistance; Merit Staffing of State 
Administration and Allocation of Training Funds to States; Final 
Rule.'' Although the Recovery Act reauthorized the TAA program and 
raised the cap on training funds, it did not appropriate any funds for 
the TAA program. Rather, the Consolidated Omnibus Appropriations Act, 
2009, Public Law 111-8, appropriated TAA administrative and program 
funds to the Federal Unemployment Benefits and Allowances (FUBA) 
account. The FY 2010 distributions of funds under TEGL 9-09 were FUBA 
appropriations. The

[[Page 79420]]

FY 2011 distributions will also be FUBA appropriations. Therefore, 
separate tracking and reporting requirements, which apply specifically 
to Recovery Act funds, do not apply to the TAA funds provided to the 
States from this and future FUBA appropriations. However, as discussed 
in TEGL No. 22-08, the TGAAA established new reporting requirements 
specific to the TAA program to increase the transparency and 
accountability of the program. ETA issued additional guidance on those 
requirements in TEGL No. 6-09, ``Instructions for implementing the 
revised 2010 Trade Adjustment Assistance Trade Activity Participant 
Report (TAPR).'' Funding amounts for each State are based upon TAPR 
data that each State submits quarterly.
    4. FY 2011 TAA Training Fund Distribution Process. As noted above, 
the TGAAA increased the cap on TAA training funds from $220 million 
annually to $575 million for both FY 2009 and FY 2010. Under current 
authorization, this cap is set to expire December 31, 2010 and revert 
back to the $220 million level. However, there is a possibility that 
the higher cap will be reauthorized through FY 2011. With this in mind, 
two attachments have been prepared for this TEGL showing the State 
Initial Allocations for FY 2011. The first shows the initial 
allocations with reauthorization at the $220 million level and the 
second attachment shows the initial allocations with reauthorization at 
the $575 million level. For FY 2011, an amount equal to 65 percent of 
the annual training funds is initially distributed to States by formula 
and 35 percent will be held in reserve as required by the amendments 
and 20 CFR 618.910--618.930.
    A. TAA Formula Funds: The initial allocation of 65 percent of 
training funds among the States will follow the four factors set forth 
in the new Section 236(a)(2)(C)(ii) of the Trade Act and explained in 
20 CFR 618.910(f):
    1. Trend in number of workers covered by certifications during the 
most recent four consecutive calendar quarters for which data are 
available;
    2. Trend in number of workers participating in training during the 
most recent four consecutive calendar quarters for which data are 
available;
    3. Number of workers estimated to be participating in training 
during the fiscal year; and
    4. Estimated amount of funding needed to provide approved training 
to such workers during the fiscal year.
    Factor 1 will be established using the most recent four quarters 
(FY 2009 Quarter 4 through FY 2010 Quarter 3) of data for certified 
workers by State, and the quarters will be weighted 40 percent; 30 
percent; 20 percent; and 10 percent, respectively, from the most recent 
to the earliest quarter. This approach will establish a trend, giving 
the most recent quarters a greater impact on each factor than an 
earlier quarter will have.
    Factor 2 will be established using the most recent four quarters 
(FY 2009 Quarter 4 through FY 2010 Quarter 3) of data for workers 
participating in training by State, and the quarters will be weighted 
40 percent; 30 percent; 20 percent; and 10 percent, respectively, from 
the most recent quarter to least recent quarter. As with Factor 1, this 
approach will establish a trend, giving the most recent quarters a 
greater impact on each factor than an earlier quarter will have.
    Factor 3 will be determined by dividing the weighted average number 
of training participants for the State determined in Factor 2 by the 
sum of the weighted averages for all States and multiplying the 
resulting ratio by the projected national average of training 
participants for the fiscal year, using the estimates underlying ETA's 
most recent budget submission or update.
    Factor 4 will be calculated by multiplying the estimated number of 
participants in Factor 3 by the average training cost for the State. 
The average training cost will be calculated by dividing total training 
expenditures for the most recent four quarters by the average number of 
training participants for the same time period.
    Once each of the four factors has been determined for each State, 
under 20 CFR 618.910(f)(3) all four factors will be assigned an equal 
weight. For FY 2011, the weight will be 25 percent of the total for 
each factor.
    Section 236(a)(2)(C)(iii) of the Trade Act includes a hold harmless 
feature. The statute now provides that a State's initial allocation be 
at least 25 percent of the amount the State received in its initial 
allocation for the prior fiscal year. This requirement is codified at 
20 CFR 618.910(c).
    ETA will determine the national total and each State's percentage 
of the national total for each factor. Using each State's percentage of 
each of these weighted factors, ETA will determine the unadjusted 
percentage that the State will receive of the amount available for 
initial allocations. As provided in 20 CFR 618.910(c), (d) and (e), 
allocations under $100,000 will be removed, and the statutory 25 
percent hold harmless factor will be applied, resulting in an adjusted 
FY 2011 allocation for the remaining States. If the program is 
reauthorized at the $575,000,000 level, the percentages for all the 
States will total 100 percent of $373,750,000, which is 65 percent of 
the training cap. If the program reverts back to the $220,000,000 
level, the percentages for all the States will total 100 percent of 
$143,000,000, which is 65 percent of the training cap.
    In those instances where the formula approach would give a State 
less than $100,000, 20 CFR 918.910(e)(2)(i) provides that that State 
will not receive any initial allocation, but may, where needed, request 
TAA reserve funds in accordance with the procedures described in 
Section B. The initial allocations for each State are attached.
    B. TAA Reserve Funds: Funds will not be distributed under the 
funding formula until the funding situation becomes clearer. Until that 
time, States may request reserve funds. Reserve funds will be 
distributed to States in accordance with 20 CFR 618.920 on an as-needed 
basis to provide monies to those States that experience large, 
unexpected layoffs or otherwise have training needs that are not met by 
their initial allocation. These funds must be requested using the ETA-
9117 (OMB No. 1205-0275).
    In order to be eligible for TAA reserve funds, a State must 
demonstrate that at least 50 percent of its training funds have been 
expended or that it needs more funds to meet unusual or unexpected 
events. A State requesting reserve funds also must provide a documented 
estimate of expected funding needs through the end of the fiscal year. 
That estimate must be based on an analysis that includes at least the 
following:
     The average cost of training in the State;
     The expected number of participants in training through 
the end of the fiscal year; and
     The remaining funds the State has available for training.
    C. Job Search and Relocation Allowances: States may also request 
job search and relocation allowances for adversely affected workers who 
have no reasonable expectation of obtaining suitable employment within 
their local commuting areas. These funds must also be requested using 
the ETA-9117 (OMB No. 1205-0275) and may be submitted at any time or in 
combination with a request for reserve training funds.
    D. TAA Program Administration Funds: States will receive an 
additional 15 percent of all supplemental allocation and reserve funds 
for program administration, as provided by Section 235A(a)(1) of the 
Trade Act. Not more than two-thirds of these additional

[[Page 79421]]

funds may be used to cover administrative expenses, and not less than 
one-third of such funds may be used for the purpose of providing 
employment and case management services, as provided by Section 
235A(a)(2) of the Trade Act. Guidance is provided in TEGL No. 22-08. If 
the 2009 Amendments expire, this limitation will change, and additional 
guidance will be provided. The administrative funds will be included 
each time funds are obligated to States by ETA. The program 
administration allocations for each State are also included in the 
attachment.
    E. Employment and Case Management Services Funds: Each State that 
receives FY 2011 TAA funds will receive $350,000 for the purpose of 
providing employment and case management services to TAA participants, 
as provided by Section 235A(b)(1) of the Trade Act. A State that does 
not receive the $350,000 for case management services because it 
received no initial allocation will receive those funds if it 
subsequently receives a reserve funding allocation.
    5. Recapture of TAA Funds. Consistent with the FY 2011 TAA Annual 
Cooperative Financial Agreement, ETA may recapture any funds 
distributed to any State in the same fiscal year as they were given if 
it determines that the State will not expend the funds, but only after 
consultation with, and appropriate notification to, State officials.
    6. Action Requested. States will inform all appropriate staff of 
the contents of these instructions.
    7. Inquiries. States should direct all inquiries to the appropriate 
ETA regional office.
    8. Attachments.
    Attachment A: State Initial Allocations for FY 2011 at the 
$220,000,000 level.
    Attachment B: State Initial Allocations for FY 2011 at the 
$575,000,000 level.
