ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Title I of WIA (Pub. L. 105– 220) requires the U.S. Secretary of Labor (Secretary) to update and publish the LLSIL tables annually, for uses described in the law (including determining eligibility for youth). WIA defines the term ‘‘low income individual’’ as one who qualifies under various criteria, including an individual who received income for a six-month period that does not exceed the higher level of the poverty line or 70 percent of the LLSIL. This issuance provides the Secretary’s annual LLSIL for 2013 and references the current 2013 Health and Human Services ‘‘Poverty Guidelines.’’ DATES: This notice is effective March 19, 2013. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION OR QUESTIONS ON LLSIL: Please contact Samuel Wright, Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room S– 4526, Washington, DC 20210; Telephone: 202–693–2870; Fax: 202– 693–3015 (these are not toll-free PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16871 numbers); Email address: wright.samuel.e@dol.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of WIA is to provide workforce investment activities through statewide and local workforce investment systems that increase the employment, retention, and earnings of participants. WIA programs are intended to increase the occupational skill attainment by participants and the quality of the workforce, thereby reducing welfare dependency and enhancing the productivity and competitiveness of the Nation. LLSIL is used for several purposes under the WIA. Specifically, WIA Section 101(25) defines the term ‘‘low income individual’’ for eligibility purposes, and Sections 127(b)(2)(C) and 132(b)(1)(B)(v)(IV) define the terms ‘‘disadvantaged youth’’ and ‘‘disadvantaged adult’’ in terms of the poverty line or LLSIL for State formula allotments. The governor and State/local workforce investment boards (WIBs) use the LLSIL for determining eligibility for youth and adults for certain services. ETA encourages governors and State/ local WIBs to consult the WIA regulations and the preamble to the WIA Final Rule (published at 65 FR 49294 August 11, 2000) for more specific guidance in applying LLSIL to program requirements. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published the most current povertylevel guidelines in the Federal Register on January 24, 2013 (Volume 78, Number 16), pp. 5182–5183. The HHS 2013 Poverty guidelines may also be found on the Internet at http:// aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/13poverty.cfm. ETA plans to have the 2013 LLSIL available on its Web site at http:// www.doleta.gov/llsil/2013/. E:\FR\FM\19MRN1.SGM 19MRN1
