Download as PDF srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 19736 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 63 / Tuesday, April 2, 2013 / Notices The U.S. Department of Labor (Department) produces trigger notices indicating which states qualify for both EB and EUC08 benefits, and provides the beginning and ending dates of payable periods for each qualifying state. The trigger notices covering state eligibility for these programs can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/ unemploy/claims_arch.asp. The following changes have occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding states EUC08 and EB trigger status: • Maryland and Texas have triggered ‘‘off’’ in Tier 3 of EUC08 Maryland and Texas began a 13-week mandatory ‘‘on’’ period in Tier 3 of EUC08 on October 7, 2012. Based on data released from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, these states are below the 7.0 percent threshold rate necessary to remain ‘‘on’’ in Tier 3 of EUC08. As a result, they have concluded a payable period in Tier 3 and the week ending January 5, 2013, was the last week in which EUC08 claimants in these states could exhaust Tier 2, and establish Tier 3 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants could receive any remaining entitlement they had in Tier 3 after January 5, 2013. • Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina have triggered ‘‘off’’ in Tier 4 of EUC08. The three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate in these states fell below the 9.0 percent threshold rate to remain ‘‘on’’ in Tier 4 of EUC08. This triggered these states ‘‘off’’ of Tier 4 and the week ending January 12, 2013, was the last week in which EUC08 claimants in these states could exhaust Tier 3, and establish Tier 4 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants could receive any remaining entitlement they had in Tier 4 after January 12, 2013. • Louisiana, Missouri, and Ohio have triggered ‘‘off’’ in Tier 3 of EUC08. The three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate in Louisiana, Missouri, and Ohio fell below the 7.0 percent threshold rate to remain ‘‘on’’ in Tier 3 of EUC08. This triggered these states ‘‘off’’ of Tier 3 and the week ending January 12, 2013, was the last week in which EUC08 claimants in these states could exhaust Tier 2, and establish Tier 3 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants could receive any remaining entitlement they had in Tier 3 after January 12, 2013. • Montana has triggered ‘‘off’’ in Tier 2 of EUC08. The three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate in Montana fell below the 6.0 percent threshold rate to remain ‘‘on’’ in Tier 2 VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:35 Apr 01, 2013 Jkt 229001 of EUC08. This triggered Montana ‘‘off’’ of Tier 2 and the week ending January 12, 2013, was the last week in which EUC08 claimants in Montana could have exhausted Tier 1, and establish Tier 2 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants could receive any remaining entitlement they had in Tier 2 after January 12, 2013. • Alaska has triggered ‘‘on’’ Tier 4 of EUC08. Alaska’s 13-week insured unemployment rate for the week ending January 19, 2013, rose to meet the 6 percent threshold to trigger ‘‘on’’ to Tier 4 of EUC08. The payable period for Alaska in Tier Four of EUC08 began February 3, 2013. As a result, the current maximum potential entitlement for claimants in Alaska in EUC08 has increased from 37 weeks to 47 weeks. • Alaska triggers ‘‘on’’ to EB. Alaska’s 13-week insured unemployment rate for the week ending January 19, 2013, rose to meet the 6 percent threshold to trigger ‘‘on’’ to EB. Alaska’s payable period in EB began February 3, 2013.

Attachment C Dislocated Worker State Formula PY 2012 Reallotment Methodology Reallotment Summary: This year ETA analyzed State WIA Dislocated Worker 9130 financial reports from the June 30, 2012 reporting period for program year (PY) 2011 to determine if any State had unobligated funds in excess of twenty percent of their PY 2011 allotment amount. If so, we will recapture that amount from PY 2012 funds and reallot among eligible States. • Source Data: State WIA 9130 financial status reports • Programs: State Dislocated Worker (DW) State Rapid Response Local Dislocated Worker (includes local administration) • Period: June 30, 2012 • Years covered: PY 2011 and FY 2012 Reallotment Calculations: (1) ETA computes the State’s total amount of PY 2011 State obligations (including Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 funds) for the Dislocated Worker (DW) program. State obligations are considered to be the total of the DW statewide activities obligations, Rapid Response obligations, and 100 percent of local DW program authorized (which includes local admin authorized). The State’s total unobligated balance for the DW program is the PY 2011 DW allotment amount (minus the total DW obligations) (adjusted for recapture/ reallotment and statutory formula-based rescissions, if applicable. This year a rescission was applicable to all States that the recapture for Maine was applicable, but reallotment for all other States was not applicable). (For reallotment purposes, DW allotted funds transferred to the Navajo Nation are added back to Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah Local DW authorized amounts.) (2) Section 667.150 of the regulations provides that the recapture calculations exclude the reserve for state administration. Data on State administrative authorized and obligated amounts are not normally available on WIA 9130 financial reports. In the preliminary calculation to determine States potentially liable for recapture, the DW portion of the State administrative amount authorized is estimated by calculating the five percent maximum amount for State DW administrative costs using the DW State allotment amounts (adjusted for recapture/reallotment and statutory formula-based rescissions). For the DW portion of the State administrative VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:35 Apr 01, 2013 Jkt 229001 amount obligated, 100 percent of the estimated authorized amount is treated as obligated, although this estimate of State administration obligations is limited by reported statewide activities obligations overall. (3) ETA requests that those States potentially liable for recapture provide additional data on state administrative amounts which are not regularly reported on the PY 2011 and FY 2012 statewide activities reports. The additional information requested is the amount of statewide activities funds that were authorized and obligated for State administration as of June 30, 2012. If a State provides actual State DW administrative costs, authorized and obligated, in the comments section of revised 9130 reports, this data replaces the estimates. Based on the requested additional actual data submitted by potentially liable States on revised reports, the DW total allotment for these States is reduced by the DW portion of the State administrative amount authorized. Likewise, the DW total obligations for these States are reduced by the DW portion of the obligated State administrative funding. (4) States (including those adjusted by State administrative data) with unobligated balances exceeding 20 percent of the combined PY2011/ FY2012 DW allotment amount (adjusted for recapture/reallotment and statutory formula-based rescissions) will have their PY 2012 DW funding (from the FY 2013 portion) reduced (recaptured) by the amount of the excess. (5) Finally, States with unobligated balances which do not exceed 20 percent (eligible states) will receive a share of the total recaptured amount (based on their share of the total PY 2011/FY2012 DW allotments of eligible states) in their PY 2012 DW funding (FY 2013 portion).

Notice on Reallotment of Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Title I 
Formula Allotted Funds for Dislocated Worker Activities for Program 
Year (PY) 2012

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: Public Law 105-220, the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), 
requires the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) to conduct reallotment of 
dislocated worker formula allotted funds based on State financial 
reports submitted as of the end of the prior program year (PY). This 
notice publishes the dislocated worker PY 2012 funds for recapture by 
State and the amount to be reallotted to eligible States.

DATES: This notice is effective April 2, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amanda Ahlstrand, Acting 
Administrator, U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workforce 
Investment, Employment and Training Administration, Room C-4526, 200 
Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC Telephone (202) 693-3052 (this 
is not a toll-free number) or fax (202) 693-3981.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: WIA Section 132(c) requires the Secretary to 
conduct reallotment of dislocated worker funds based on financial 
reports submitted by States as of the end of the prior program year. 
The procedures the Secretary uses for recapture and reallotment of 
funds are described in WIA regulation at 20 CFR 667.150. Training and 
Employment Guidance Letter 19-11 advised States that reallotment of 
funds under WIA will occur during PY 2012 based on State obligations 
made in PY 2011. We will not recapture any PY 2012 funds for Adult and 
Youth programs because in no case do PY 2011 unobligated funds exceed 
the statutory requirement of 20 percent of State allotted funds. There

[[Page 19737]]

was recapture of WIA Dislocated Worker funds in PY 2011, but no 
reallotment of those funds.
    Excess unobligated State funds in the amount of $69,038 will be 
captured from PY 2012 formula allotted funds for the Dislocated Worker 
program for one State and distributed by formula to PY 2012 dislocated 
worker funds for eligible States. The description of the methodology 
used for the calculation of the recapture/reallotment amounts and the 
distribution of the changes to PY 2012 formula allotments for 
dislocated worker activities are provided in Attachment C below.
    WIA Section 132(c) requires the Governor to prescribe equitable 
procedures for making funds available from the State and local areas in 
the event that the State is required to make funds available for 
reallotment.

Dislocated Worker State Formula PY 2012 Reallotment Methodology

    Reallotment Summary: This year ETA analyzed State WIA Dislocated 
Worker 9130 financial reports from the June 30, 2012 reporting period 
for program year (PY) 2011 to determine if any State had unobligated 
funds in excess of twenty percent of their PY 2011 allotment amount. If 
so, we will recapture that amount from PY 2012 funds and reallot among 
eligible States.

 Source Data: State WIA 9130 financial status reports
 Programs:
    State Dislocated Worker (DW)
    State Rapid Response
    Local Dislocated Worker (includes local administration)

 Period: June 30, 2012
 Years covered: PY 2011 and FY 2012

    Reallotment Calculations:
    (1) ETA computes the State's total amount of PY 2011 State 
obligations (including Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 funds) for the Dislocated 
Worker (DW) program. State obligations are considered to be the total 
of the DW statewide activities obligations, Rapid Response obligations, 
and 100 percent of local DW program authorized (which includes local 
admin authorized). The State's total unobligated balance for the DW 
program is the PY 2011 DW allotment amount (minus the total DW 
obligations) (adjusted for recapture/reallotment and statutory formula-
based rescissions, if applicable. This year a rescission was applicable 
to all States that the recapture for Maine was applicable, but 
reallotment for all other States was not applicable). (For reallotment 
purposes, DW allotted funds transferred to the Navajo Nation are added 
back to Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah Local DW authorized amounts.)
    (2) Section 667.150 of the regulations provides that the recapture 
calculations exclude the reserve for state administration. Data on 
State administrative authorized and obligated amounts are not normally 
available on WIA 9130 financial reports. In the preliminary calculation 
to determine States potentially liable for recapture, the DW portion of 
the State administrative amount authorized is estimated by calculating 
the five percent maximum amount for State DW administrative costs using 
the DW State allotment amounts (adjusted for recapture/reallotment and 
statutory formula-based rescissions). For the DW portion of the State 
administrative amount obligated, 100 percent of the estimated 
authorized amount is treated as obligated, although this estimate of 
State administration obligations is limited by reported statewide 
activities obligations overall.
    (3) ETA requests that those States potentially liable for recapture 
provide additional data on state administrative amounts which are not 
regularly reported on the PY 2011 and FY 2012 statewide activities 
reports. The additional information requested is the amount of 
statewide activities funds that were authorized and obligated for State 
administration as of June 30, 2012. If a State provides actual State DW 
administrative costs, authorized and obligated, in the comments section 
of revised 9130 reports, this data replaces the estimates. Based on the 
requested additional actual data submitted by potentially liable States 
on revised reports, the DW total allotment for these States is reduced 
by the DW portion of the State administrative amount authorized. 
Likewise, the DW total obligations for these States are reduced by the 
DW portion of the obligated State administrative funding.
    (4) States (including those adjusted by State administrative data) 
with unobligated balances exceeding 20 percent of the combined PY2011/
FY2012 DW allotment amount (adjusted for recapture/reallotment and 
statutory formula-based rescissions) will have their PY 2012 DW funding 
(from the FY 2013 portion) reduced (recaptured) by the amount of the 
excess.
    (5) Finally, States with unobligated balances which do not exceed 
20 percent (eligible states) will receive a share of the total 
recaptured amount (based on their share of the total PY 2011/FY2012 DW 
allotments of eligible states) in their PY 2012 DW funding (FY 2013 
portion).
