Notice of Availability of Funds and Solicitation for Grant Applications for Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grants
Document Number: 2013-09561
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-04-24
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
The U.S. Department of Labor (the Department) announces the availability of approximately $474 million in grant funds to be awarded under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program. The TAACCCT grant program provides eligible institutions of higher education, as defined in section 102 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1002), with funds to expand and improve their ability to deliver education and career training programs that can be completed in two years or less, and are suited for workers who are eligible for training under the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) for Workers Program (``TAA-eligible workers'') of chapter 2 of title II of the Trade Act of 1974, 19 U.S.C. 2271-2323, as well as other adults. Eligible institutions may be located in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico or the U.S. territories; however, the competitiveness of institutions in the U.S. territories for this Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA) may be impacted by their limited opportunity to serve TAA-eligible workers. The primary intent of the TAACCCT program is to meet the educational or career training needs of workers who have lost their jobs or are threatened with job loss as a result of foreign trade by funding the expansion and improvement of education and career training programs that are suited for these individuals; however, the Department expects that a wide range of individuals will benefit from the TAACCCT program once education and training programs are developed and implemented. The Department intends to fund grants to single institution applicants ranging from $2,372,500 to $2.75 million, totaling up to $150 million. This allows the Department to award 54-63 grants to single institutions, potentially funding more than one per state. The Department will award grants up to $25 million to single-state or multi-state consortium applicants, up to approximately $324 million in total awards, which propose programs that impact TAA-eligible workers and other adults across a state, region or regions, industry sector or cluster of related industries. The complete SGA and any subsequent SGA amendments in connection with this solicitation are described in further detail on ETA's Web site at https://www.doleta.gov/grants/ or on https://www.grants.gov. The Web sites provide application information, eligibility requirements, review and selection procedures, and other program requirements governing this solicitation.

Date: 2013-04-24

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), in coordination with Department of Labor's (the Department or DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy, announces the availability of approximately $18 million for a fourth round of cooperative agreements to state agencies that administer the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998. The Department expects to use this funding to award four (4) to eight (8) cooperative agreements to help states develop and implement plans for improving effective and meaningful participation of persons with disabilities in the workforce. These cooperative agreements will have a three (3) years and four (4) months period of performance. All job seekers and workers, including those with disabilities, will continue to have access to WIA-funded services through the public workforce system. The complete SGA and any subsequent SGA amendments in connection with this solicitation are described in further detail on ETA's Web site at https://www.doleta.gov/grants/ or on https://www.grants.gov. The Web sites provide application information, eligibility requirements, review and selection procedures, and other program requirements governing this solicitation.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-09432
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model DC-10-10, DC-10-10F, DC-10-15, DC-10-30, DC-10-30F (KC-10A and KDC-10), DC-10-40, DC-10-40F, MD-10-10F, MD-10-30F, MD-11, and MD-11F airplanes. This AD was prompted by fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This AD requires adding design features to detect electrical faults and to detect a pump running in an empty fuel tank. We are issuing this AD to reduce the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter France Helicopters
Document Number: 2013-09420
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an existing emergency airworthiness directive (EAD) for Eurocopter France (Eurocopter) Model AS350B3 helicopters with certain part-numbered laminated half-bearings (bearings) and tail rotor (T/R) blades installed. The existing EAD currently requires installing two placards and revising the Rotorcraft Flight Manual (RFM). The EAD also requires certain checks and inspecting and replacing, if necessary, all four bearings. Finally, the EAD requires a one-time removal and inspection of the bearings, and replacing the bearings if necessary. Since we issued that EAD, we have determined that newly-designed helicopters with other part-numbered T/R blades may be affected by this unsafe condition and that the requirements should allow the bearing removal and inspection to be performed before the last flight of the day. This superseding AD removes the bearing and T/R blade part numbers (P/N) from the applicability paragraph and clarifies when the bearing removal and inspection is required. The actions are intended to prevent vibration due to a failed bearing, failure of the T/R, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

Agency: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
