Byron Zuidema, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Employment and Training Administration. Employment and Training Administration Notice on Reallotment of Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title I Formula Allotted Funds for Dislocated Worker Activities for Program Year (PY) 2016 Employment and Training Administration (ETA), Labor. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA), requires the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) to conduct reallotment of certain WIOA formula allotted funds based on ETA 9130 financial reports submitted by states as of the end of the prior program year (PY). This notice publishes the dislocated worker PY 2016 funds for recapture by state and the amount to be reallotted to eligible states. DATES: This notice is effective April 5, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amanda Ahlstrand, 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: In the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Appropriations Act, Congress appropriated WIOA PY 2016 funds in two portions: (1) Funds available for obligation July 1, 2016 (i.e., PY 2016 ‘‘base’’ funds), and (2) funds available for obligation October 1, 2016 (i.e., Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 ‘‘advance’’ funds). Together, these two portions SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 make up the complete PY 2016 WIOA funding. Training and Employment Guidance Letter No. 17–15 announced WIOA allotments based on this appropriation and alerted states to the recapture and reallotment of funds’ provisions, as required under WIOA Section 132(c). This section of WIOA requires the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) to conduct reallotment of excess unobligated WIOA Adult, Youth, and Dislocated Worker formula funds based on ETA 9130 financial reports submitted by states at the end of the prior program year (i.e., PY 2015). WIOA regulations at 20 CFR 693.135 describe the procedures the Secretary uses for recapture and reallotment of funds. ETA will not recapture any PY 2016 funds for the Adult and Youth programs because there are no states where PY 2015 unobligated funds exceed the statutory requirements of 20 percent of state allotted funds. However, for the Dislocated Worker program, Kentucky had unobligated PY 2015 funds in excess of 20 percent of its allotment. Therefore, ETA will recapture a total of $805,082 of PY 2016 funding from Kentucky and reallot those funds to the remaining eligible states, as required by WIOA Section 132(c). ETA will issue a Notice of Award to the states to reflect the recapture and reallotment of these funds. The adjustment of funds will be made to the FY 2017 advance portion of the PY 2016 allotments, which ETA issued in October 2016. The attached tables display the net changes to PY 2016 formula allotments and a description of the reallotment methodology. WIOA and its implementing regulations do not provide specific requirements by which states must distribute realloted funds, so states have flexibility to determine the methodology used. For any state subject to recapture of funds, WIOA Section 132(c)(5) requires the Governor to prescribe equitable procedures for reacquiring funds from the state and local areas. As mentioned, the recapture/ reallotment adjustments will be made to the FY 2017 advance portion of the PY 2016 allotment. Therefore, for reporting purposes, states must reflect the recapture/reallotment amount (decrease or increase) in the ‘‘Total Federal Funds Authorized’’ line of any affected FY 2017 ETA 9130 financial reports (State Dislocated Worker Activities, Statewide Rapid Response, Local Dislocated Worker Activities) in a manner consistent with the method of distribution of these amounts to state and local areas used by the state. The state must include an explanation of the E:\FR\FM\05APN1.SGM 05APN1
