ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This Notice announces final allotments for PY 2011 for the WIA, Section 166 program. The WIA allotments for the Section 166 program are based on formulas defined at 20 CFR 668.296 and 20 CFR 668.440. DATES: This Notice is effective on June 8, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Evangeline Campbell at (202) 693–3737. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Labor (the Department) is announcing WIA final allotments for PY 2011 for the Section 166 program. This Notice provides information on the amount of funds available during PY 2011 to WIA Section 166 grantees with an approved plan for PY 2011. The allotments are based on the funds appropriated in the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, Public Law (Pub. L.) 112–10, signed April 15, 2011. This appropriation requires an across-the-board rescission of 0.2 percent to all Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 discretionary funding for the programs covered by this TEGL. Included below are tables listing the PY 2011 allotments (including the 0.2 percent rescission) for the WIA Section 166 Supplemental Youth Service Program (Table A—youth) and the Comprehensive Service Program (Table B—adult). SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Indian Employment and Training and Related Services Demonstration Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102– 477), federally recognized tribes and Native Alaska entities can integrate employment and training and related services into a single program which is administered by the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI). Fifty-four WIA Section 166 grantees participate in the Public Law 102–477 program. The funding allotments and administrative oversight for these 54 grants are transferred to the DOI. For PY 2011, a total of $4,042,359 in WIA youth funding and $10,026,102 in WIA adult funding will be transferred to the DOI. Public Law 102–477 grant allotments are identified in the ‘‘Grant Type’’ column in tables A and B. WIA Section 166- Supplemental Youth Service Program (Youth) Allotments. The Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act made available to the Department $825,914 million for training and employment services for WIA Youth Activities. Under the WIA, Employment and Training Administration (ETA) will reserve 1.5 percent of funds appropriated for youth activities to make available $12,388,708 for the WIA Section 166, Indian and Native American Supplement Youth Service program. This is $1,472, 327 less than PY 2010 and represents a 10.6 percent overall decrease from PY 2010 (including the 0.2 percent rescission). Table A includes a breakdown of the WIA Section 166 youth program allotments for PY 2011 and provides a comparison to PY 2010 youth allotments. In determining the youth allotments for individual grantees, the Department used the formula calculation provided at 20 CFR 668.440 of the WIA regulations which states: (a) Beginning with PY 2000, supplemental youth funding will be allocated to eligible INA grantees on the basis of the relative number of Native American youth between the ages of 14 and 21, inclusive, in the grantee’s designated INA service area as compared to the number of Native American youth in other eligible INA service areas. WIA Section 166- Comprehensive Service Program (Adult) Allotments. PY 33367 2011 WIA Section 166 adult funds total $52,652,484 (including the 0.2 percent rescission). Table B includes a breakdown of the WIA Section 166 adult program allotments for PY 2011 and provides a comparison to PY 2010 adult allotments. Prior to allocating the full appropriation to INA grantees, the Department—in consultation with the Native American Employment and Training Council—reserved 1 percent ($526,525) for technical assistance and training purposes pursuant to WIA regulation at 20 CFR 668.296(e). Therefore, the amount available for allocation to INA grantees is $52,125,959. In determining the adult allotments, the Department used the formula calculation provided at 20 CFR 668.296(b) of the WIA regulations which states: (b) Each INA grantee will receive the sum of the funds calculated under the following formula: (1) One-quarter of the funds available will be allocated on the basis of the number of unemployed Native American persons in the grantee’s designated INA service area(s) compared to all such persons in all such areas in the United States. (2) Three-quarters of the funds available will be allocated on the basis of the number of Native American persons in poverty in the grantee’s designated INA service area(s) as compared to all such persons in all such areas in the United States. (3) The data and definitions used to implement these formulas are provided by the U.S. Bureau of the Census. Census 2000 data was used to calculate the WIA Section 166 PY 2011 allotments. ETA continues to work with the Census Bureau regarding the American Community Survey and updated data are not available at this time. ETA will consult with WIA Section 166 grantees when new data is available for use in calculating allocation formulas. Signed in Washington, DC on this 2nd day of June 2011.
