Workforce Investment Act: Native American Employment and Training Council, 69879-69880 [2013-27943]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 225 / Thursday, November 21, 2013 / Notices are attributable to a shift of the services supplied by Business Billing Customer Care to other locations within the United States. With respect to Section 222(b)(2) of the Act, the initial investigation revealed that the subject firm is not a Supplier to, or act as a Downstream Producer to, a firm that employed a group of workers who received a certification of eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). Finally, the initial investigation revealed that the group eligibility requirements under Section 222(e) of the Act have not been satisfied because the workers’ firm has not been publicly identified by name by the International Trade Commission as a member of a domestic industry in an investigation resulting in an affirmative finding of serious injury, market disruption, or material injury, or threat thereof. The request for reconsideration alleges that the subject firm has shifted billing services, ordering services, and/ or customer support services to Slovakia, Mexico, India, and/or the Philippines. The petitioner also supplied additional information in regard to employment figures at the aforementioned locations. The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and the existing record, and will conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended. Conclusion After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor’s prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted. Signed at Washington, DC, this 23rd day of October, 2013. Del Min Amy Chen, Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.

ACTION: Notice of solicitation for grant applications. AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:17 Nov 20, 2013 Jkt 232001 Funding Opportunity Number: SGA/ DFA PY–13–01. SUMMARY: The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), announces the availability of approximately $100 million in grant funds, authorized under Section 414(c) of the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998 (ACWIA), as amended (codified at 29 U.S.C. 2916a), for the Youth CareerConnect grant program. The program is designed to provide high school students with education and training that combines rigorous academic and technical curricula focused on specific in-demand occupations and industries for which employers are using H–1B visas to hire foreign workers as well as the related activities necessary to support such training to increase participants’ employability in H–1B in-demand industries and occupations. Furthermore, given the large number of H–1B visas in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) industries, pending high quality proposals, DOL expects a large share of the grants to support education and training in STEM industries. The ultimate goals for the program are to ensure that participants gain academic and occupational skills by completing the program and graduating from high school; move into a positive placement following high school that includes unsubsidized employment, postsecondary education, long-term occupational skills training, or Registered Apprenticeship; obtain an industry-recognized credential in an H–1B industry or occupation for those industries where credential attainment is feasible by program completion, in addition to a high school diploma; and earn post-secondary credit towards a degree or credit-bearing certificate issued by an institution of higher education. As stated under Section 414(c) of ACWIA, grants under this SGA will be awarded to partnerships of public and private sector entities. Approximately $100 million is expected to be available to fund approximately 25 to 40 grants. DOL intends to fund grants ranging from $2 million to $7 million. Grants can be used to fund programs in a single site or to fund multi-site programs. The complete SGA and any subsequent SGA amendments in connection with this solicitation are described in further detail on ETA’s Web site at http://www.doleta.gov/ grants/ or on http://www.grants.gov. The Web sites provide application information, eligibility requirements, PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69879 review and selection procedures, and other program requirements governing this solicitation.
