SUMMARY: Eight states (see Appendix) qualify to receive a share of the $10.4 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 (AEFLA), are available for the eligible states to use through June 30, 2014, to support innovative workforce development and education activities that are authorized under title IB (Workforce Investment Systems) or title II (AEFLA) of WIA, or under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\25MYN1.SGM 25MYN1 31394 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 102 / Friday, May 25, 2012 / Notices 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 2010 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 the Perkins Act 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 eligibility 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information collection requirements in accord with the PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA–95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). OSHA is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for certain information collection requirements contained in the Temporary Labor Camps Standard (29 CFR 1910.142). The main purpose of these provisions is to eliminate the incidence of communicable disease among temporary labor camp residents. The Standard requires camp superintendents to report immediately to the local health officer the name and address of any individual in the camp known to have, or suspected of having, a communicable disease. Whenever there is a case of suspected food poisoning or an unusual prevalence of any illness in which fever, diarrhea, sore throat, vomiting or jaundice is a prominent symptom, the Standard requires the camp superintendent to report that immediately to the health authority. In addition, the Standard requires that where the toilet rooms are shared, separate toilet rooms must be provided for each sex. These rooms must be ‘‘marked for men’’ and’’ for women’’ by signs printed in English and in the native language of the persons occupying the camp, or marked with easily understood pictures or symbols.

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 2010 performance data 
under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of

Education did not consider states' performance levels under the Perkins 
Act 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 eligibility 
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.
