[FR Doc. 2017–12385 Filed 6–14–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE P DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment and Training Administration Program Year (PY) 2017 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Allotments; PY 2017 Wagner-Peyser Act Final Allotments and PY 2017 Workforce Information Grants Employment and Training Administration, Labor. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice announces allotments for PY 2017 for WIOA Title I Youth, Adult and Dislocated Worker Activities programs; final allotments for Employment Service (ES) activities under the Wagner-Peyser Act for PY 2017 and the allotments of Workforce Information Grants to States for PY 2017. WIOA allotments for States and the State final allotments for the WagnerPeyser Act are based on formulas defined in their respective statutes. WIOA requires allotments for the Outlying Areas to be competitively based rather than based on a formula determined by the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) as occurred under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). For PY 2017, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 waives the competition requirement, and the Secretary is using the discretionary formula rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2017 funds for the Outlying Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of Palau, and the United States Virgin Islands) that was published in the SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\15JNN1.SGM 15JNN1 pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 114 / Thursday, June 15, 2017 / Notices Federal Register at 65 FR 8236 (Feb. 17, 2000). WIOA specifically included the Republic of Palau as an Outlying Area, except during any period for which the Secretary of Labor and the Secretary of Education determine that a Compact of Free Association is in effect and contains provisions for training and education assistance prohibiting the assistance provided under WIOA; no such determinations prohibiting assistance have been made. The formula that the Department of Labor (Department) used for PY 2017 is the same formula used in PY 2016 and is described in the section on Youth Activities program allotments. Comments are invited on the formula used to allot funds to the Outlying Areas. DATES: Comments on the formula used to allot funds to the Outlying Areas must be received by July 17, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department is announcing WIOA allotments for PY 2017 for Youth Activities, Adults and Dislocated Worker Activities, Wagner-Peyser Act PY 2017 final allotments, and PY 2017 Workforce Information Grant allotments. This notice provides information on the amount of funds available during PY 2017 to States with an approved WIOA Title I and WagnerPeyser Act Strategic Plan for PY 2017, and information regarding allotments to the Outlying Areas. On May 5, 2017, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, Public Law 115–31 was signed into law (‘‘the Act’’). The Act, Division H, Title I, Section 107 of the Act allows the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) to set aside up to 0.75 percent of most operating funds for evaluations. The evaluation provision is consistent with the Federal government’s priority on evidencebased policy and programming providing opportunities to expand evaluations and demonstrations in the Department to build solid evidence about what works best. In the past, funds for ETA evaluations and demonstrations were separately appropriated and managed by ETA. That separate authority has been replaced by the set aside provision. Funds are transferred to the Department’s Chief Evaluation Office to implement formal evaluations and demonstrations in collaboration with ETA. For 2017, the Secretary set aside 0.25 percent of the Training and Employment Services (TES) and State PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27527 Unemployment Insurance and Employment Services Operations (SUIESO) appropriations. ETA spread the amount to be set aside for each appropriation among the programs funded by that appropriation with more than $100 million in funding. This includes WIOA Adult, Youth and Dislocated Worker and Wagner-Peyser Employment Service program budgets. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, Division H, Title I, sec. 106(b), allows the Secretary to set aside up to 0.5 percent of each discretionary appropriation for activities related to program integrity. For 2017, the Department set aside the full 0.5 percent of most discretionary appropriations which reduced WIOA Adult, Youth, Dislocated Worker, Wagner-Peyser Employment Service and Workforce Information Grant program budgets. We also have attached tables listing the PY 2017 allotments for programs under WIOA Title I Youth Activities (Table A), Adult and Dislocated Workers Employment and Training Activities (Tables B and C, respectively), and the PY 2017 Wagner-Peyser Act final allotments (Table D). We also have attached the PY 2017 Workforce Information Grant table (Table E). Youth Activities Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2017 for WIOA Youth Activities totals $873,416,000. After reducing the appropriation by $2,488,000 for evaluations and $4,367,080 for program integrity, $866,560,920, is available for Youth Activities. Table A includes a breakdown of the Youth Activities program allotments for PY 2017 and provides a comparison of these allotments to PY 2016 Youth Activities allotments for all States, and Outlying Areas. For the Native American Youth program, the total amount available is 1.5 percent of the total amount for Youth Activities (after the evaluations and program integrity set asides), in accordance with WIOA section 127. The total funding available for the Outlying Areas was reserved at 0.25 percent of the amount appropriated for Youth Activities (after the evaluations and program integrity set asides) after the amount reserved for Native American Youth (in accordance with WIOA section 127(b)(1)(B)(i)). On December 17, 2003, Public Law 108–188, the Compact of Free Association Amendments Act of 2003 (‘‘the Compact’’), was signed into law. The Compact specified that the Republic of Palau remained eligible for WIA Title I funding. See 48 U.S.C. 1921d(f)(1)(B)(ix). WIOA sec. 512(g)(1) updated the Compact to refer to WIOA funding. The Consolidated E:\FR\FM\15JNN1.SGM 15JNN1 pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES 27528 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 114 / Thursday, June 15, 2017 / Notices Appropriations Act, 2017 (Division H, Title III, Section 305 of Pub. L. 115–31) authorized WIOA Title I funding to Palau through FY 2017. Under WIA, the Secretary had discretion for determining the methodology for distributing funds to all Outlying Areas. Under WIOA the Secretary must disseminate the funds through a competitive process. For PY 2017, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 waives the competition requirement contained in WIOA secs. 127(b)(1)(B)(ii), 132(b)(1)(A)(ii), and 132(b)(2)(A)(ii) regarding funding to Outlying Areas (e.g., American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of Palau, and the United States Virgin Islands). For PY 2017, the Department used the same methodology used since PY 2000 (i.e., we distribute funds among the Outlying Areas by formula based on relative share of the number of unemployed, a minimum of 90 percent of the prior year allotment percentage, a $75,000 minimum, and a 130 percent stop-gain of the prior year share). For the relative share calculation in PY 2017, the Department continued to use the data obtained from the 2010 Census for American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands. For the Republic of Palau, the Department used data from Palau’s 2015 Census. After the Department calculated the amount for the Outlying Areas and the Native American program, it was determined that the amount available for PY 2017 allotments to the States is $851,428,600. This total amount was below the required $1 billion threshold specified in WIOA sec. 127(b)(1)(C)(iv)(IV); therefore, the Department did not apply the WIOA additional minimum provisions. Instead, as required by WIOA, the minimums of 90 percent of the prior year allotment percentage and 0.25 percent State minimum floor apply. This is the same methodology to set a floor on the annual variation in allotments as has been applied almost continuously for more than two decades. See sec. 262(b)(2) of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) (Pub. L. 97–300), (as amended by sec. 207 of the Job Training Reform Amendments of 1992, Pub. L. 102–367); sec. 127(b)(1)(C)(iv)(IV) of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105– 220). WIOA also provides that no State may receive an allotment that is more than 130 percent of the allotment percentage for the State for the previous year. The three data factors required by WIOA sec. 127(b)(1)(C)(ii) for the PY VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:10 Jun 14, 2017 Jkt 241001 2017 Youth Activities State formula allotments are, summarized slightly, as follows: (1) The average number of unemployed individuals for Areas of Substantial Unemployment (ASUs) for the 12-month period, July 2015–June 2016; (2) Number of excess unemployed individuals or the ASU excess (depending on which is higher) averages for the same 12-month period used for ASU unemployed data; and (3) Number of disadvantaged youth (age 16 to 21, excluding college students in the workforce and military) from special tabulations of data from the American Community Survey (ACS), which the Department obtained from the Census Bureau and used since PY 2013. The Census Bureau collected the data used in the special tabulations for disadvantaged youth between January 1, 2006–December 31, 2010. For purposes of identifying ASUs for the Youth Activities allotment) formula, the Department continued to use the data made available by BLS (as described in the Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) Technical Memorandum No. S–16–15). For purposes of determining the number of disadvantaged youth, the Department continued to use the special tabulations of ACS data available at http:// www.doleta.gov/budget/ disadvantagedYouthAdults.cfm. See TEGL No. 21–12 for further information. Adult Employment and Training Activities Allotments. The total appropriated funds for Adult Activities in PY 2017 is $815,556,000. After reducing the appropriated amount by $2,323,000 for evaluations and $4,077,780 for program integrity, $809,155,220 remains for Adult Activities, of which $807,132,332 is for States and $2,022,888 is for Outlying Areas. Table B shows the PY 2017 Adult Employment and Training Activities allotments and a State by State comparison of the PY 2017 allotments to PY 2016 allotments. In accordance with WIOA, the Department reserved the total available for the Outlying Areas at 0.25 percent of the full amount appropriated for Adult Activities (after the evaluations and program integrity set asides). As discussed in the Youth Activities section above, in PY 2017 the Department will distribute the Adult Activities funding for the Outlying Areas, using the same principles, formula and data as used for Outlying Areas for Youth Activities. After determining the amount for the Outlying Areas, the Department used PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the statutory formula to distribute the remaining amount available for allotments to the States. The Department did not apply the WIOA minimum provisions for the PY 2017 allotments because the total amount available for the States was below the $960 million threshold required for Adult Activities in WIOA sec. 132(b)(1)(B)(iv)(IV). Instead, as required by WIOA, the minimums of 90 percent of the prior year allotment percentage and 0.25 percent State minimum floor apply. This is the same methodology to set a floor on the annual variation in allotments as has been applied almost continuously for more than two decades. See sec. 262(b)(2) of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) (Pub. L. 97–300), (as amended by sec. 207 of the Job Training Reform Amendments of 1992, Pub. L. 102–367); sec. 127(b)(1)(C)(iv)(IV) of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105– 220). WIOA also provides that no State may receive an allotment that is more than 130 percent of the allotment percentage for the State for the previous year. The three formula data factors for the Adult Activities program are the same as those used for the Youth Activities formula, except the Department used data for the number of disadvantaged adults (age 22 to 72, excluding college students in the workforce and military). Dislocated Worker Employment and Training Activities Allotments. The amount appropriated for Dislocated Worker activities in PY 2017 totals $1,241,719,000. The total appropriation includes formula funds for the States, while the National Reserve is used for National Dislocated Worker Grants, technical assistance and training, demonstration projects, and the Outlying Areas’ Dislocated Worker allotments. After reducing the appropriated amount by $3,536,000 for evaluations and $6,208,595 for program integrity, a total of $1,231,974,405 remains available for Dislocated Worker activities. The amount available for Outlying Areas is $3,079,936, leaving $216,046,769 for the National Reserve and a total of $1,012,847,700 available for States. Like the Adult program, Table C shows the PY 2017 Dislocated Worker activities allotments and a State by State comparison of the PY 2017 allotments to PY 2016 allotments. Like the Adult Activities program, the Department reserved the total available for the Outlying Areas at 0.25 percent of the full amount appropriated for Dislocated Worker Activities (after the evaluations and program integrity set asides). Similar to Youth and Adult funds, instead of competition, in PY E:\FR\FM\15JNN1.SGM 15JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 114 / Thursday, June 15, 2017 / Notices 2017 the Department will use the same pro rata share as the areas received for the PY 2017 WIOA Adult Activities program to distribute the Outlying Areas’ Dislocated Worker funds, the same methodology used in PY 2016. The three data factors required in WIOA sec. 132(b)(2)(B)(ii) for the PY 2017 Dislocated Worker State formula allotments are, summarized slightly, as follows: (1) Number of unemployed, averages for the 12-month period, October 2015– September 2016; (2) Number of excess unemployed, averages for the 12-month period, October 2015–September 2016; and (3) Number of long-term unemployed, averages for the 12-month period, October 2015–September 2016. In PY 2017, under WIOA the Dislocated Worker formula uses minimum and maximum provisions. No State may receive an allotment that is less than 90 percent of the State’s prior year allotment percentage or more than 130 percent of the State’s prior year allotment percentage. Wagner-Peyser Act ES Final Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2017 for ES grants totals $671,413,000. After reducing the appropriated amount by $1,826,000 for evaluations and $3,357,065 for program integrity, a total of $666,229,935 remains available for ES programs. After determining the funding for Outlying Areas, the Department calculated allotments to States using the formula set forth at section 6 of the WagnerPeyser Act (29 U.S.C. 49e). The Department based PY 2017 formula allotments on each State’s share of calendar year 2016 monthly averages of the civilian labor force (CLF) and unemployment. Section 6(b)(4) of the Wagner-Peyser Act requires the Secretary to set aside up to three percent of the total funds available for ES to ensure that each State will have sufficient resources to maintain statewide ES activities. In accordance with this provision, the Department included the three percent set aside funds in this total allotment. The Department distributed the set-aside funds in two steps to States that have experienced a reduction in their relative share of the total resources available this year from their relative share of the total resources available the previous year. In Step 1, States that have a CLF below one million and are also below the median CLF density were maintained at 100 percent of their relative share of prior year resources. ETA calculated the median CLF density based on CLF data provided by the BLS for calendar year 2016. All remaining set-aside funds were distributed on a pro-rata basis in Step 2 to all other States experiencing reductions in relative share from the prior year but not meeting the size and density criteria for Step 1. The distribution of ES funds (Table D) includes $664,605,898 for States, as well as $1,624,037 for Outlying Areas. Section 7(a) of the Wagner-Peyser Act (49 U.S.C. 49f(a)) authorizes States to use 90 percent of funds allotted to a State for labor exchange services and other career services such as job search 27529 and placement services to job seekers; appropriate recruitment services for employers; program evaluations; developing and providing labor market and occupational information; developing management information systems; and administering the work test for unemployment insurance claimants. Section 7(b) of the WagnerPeyser Act states that 10 percent of the total sums allotted to each State must be reserved for use by the Governor to provide performance incentives for public ES offices and programs, provide services for groups with special needs, and to provide for the extra costs of exemplary models for delivering services of the type described in section 7(a). Workforce Information Grants Allotments. Total PY 2017 funding for Workforce Information Grants allotments to States is $32,000,000. After reducing the total by $160,000 for program integrity, $31,840,000 is available for Workforce Information Grants. The allotment figures for each State are listed in Table E. Funds are distributed by administrative formula, with a reserve of $176,416 for Guam and the United States Virgin Islands. Guam and the United States Virgin Islands allotment amounts are partially based on CLF data. The Department distributes the remaining funds to the States with 40 percent distributed equally to all States and 60 percent distributed based on each State’s share of CLF for the 12 months ending September 2016.

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

Employment and Training Administration


Program Year (PY) 2017 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act 
(WIOA) Allotments; PY 2017 Wagner-Peyser Act Final Allotments and PY 
2017 Workforce Information Grants

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces allotments for PY 2017 for WIOA Title I 
Youth, Adult and Dislocated Worker Activities programs; final 
allotments for Employment Service (ES) activities under the Wagner-
Peyser Act for PY 2017 and the allotments of Workforce Information 
Grants to States for PY 2017.
    WIOA allotments for States and the State final allotments for the 
Wagner-Peyser Act are based on formulas defined in their respective 
statutes. WIOA requires allotments for the Outlying Areas to be 
competitively based rather than based on a formula determined by the 
Secretary of Labor (Secretary) as occurred under the Workforce 
Investment Act (WIA). For PY 2017, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2017 waives the competition requirement, and the Secretary is using the 
discretionary formula rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2017 
funds for the Outlying Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of 
the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of Palau, and the United 
States Virgin Islands) that was published in the

[[Page 27527]]

Federal Register at 65 FR 8236 (Feb. 17, 2000). WIOA specifically 
included the Republic of Palau as an Outlying Area, except during any 
period for which the Secretary of Labor and the Secretary of Education 
determine that a Compact of Free Association is in effect and contains 
provisions for training and education assistance prohibiting the 
assistance provided under WIOA; no such determinations prohibiting 
assistance have been made. The formula that the Department of Labor 
(Department) used for PY 2017 is the same formula used in PY 2016 and 
is described in the section on Youth Activities program allotments. 
Comments are invited on the formula used to allot funds to the Outlying 
Areas.

DATES: Comments on the formula used to allot funds to the Outlying 
Areas must be received by July 17, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to the Employment and Training 
Administration (ETA), Office of Financial Administration, 200

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department is announcing WIOA allotments 
for PY 2017 for Youth Activities, Adults and Dislocated Worker 
Activities, Wagner-Peyser Act PY 2017 final allotments, and PY 2017 
Workforce Information Grant allotments. This notice provides 
information on the amount of funds available during PY 2017 to States 
with an approved WIOA Title I and Wagner-Peyser Act Strategic Plan for 
PY 2017, and information regarding allotments to the Outlying Areas.
    On May 5, 2017, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, Public 
Law 115-31 was signed into law (``the Act''). The Act, Division H, 
Title I, Section 107 of the Act allows the Secretary of Labor 
(Secretary) to set aside up to 0.75 percent of most operating funds for 
evaluations. The evaluation provision is consistent with the Federal 
government's priority on evidence-based policy and programming 
providing opportunities to expand evaluations and demonstrations in the 
Department to build solid evidence about what works best. In the past, 
funds for ETA evaluations and demonstrations were separately 
appropriated and managed by ETA. That separate authority has been 
replaced by the set aside provision. Funds are transferred to the 
Department's Chief Evaluation Office to implement formal evaluations 
and demonstrations in collaboration with ETA. For 2017, the Secretary 
set aside 0.25 percent of the Training and Employment Services (TES) 
and State Unemployment Insurance and Employment Services Operations 
(SUIESO) appropriations. ETA spread the amount to be set aside for each 
appropriation among the programs funded by that appropriation with more 
than $100 million in funding. This includes WIOA Adult, Youth and 
Dislocated Worker and Wagner-Peyser Employment Service program budgets.
    The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, Division H, Title I, 
sec. 106(b), allows the Secretary to set aside up to 0.5 percent of 
each discretionary appropriation for activities related to program 
integrity. For 2017, the Department set aside the full 0.5 percent of 
most discretionary appropriations which reduced WIOA Adult, Youth, 
Dislocated Worker, Wagner-Peyser Employment Service and Workforce 
Information Grant program budgets.
    We also have attached tables listing the PY 2017 allotments for 
programs under WIOA Title I Youth Activities (Table A), Adult and 
Dislocated Workers Employment and Training Activities (Tables B and C, 
respectively), and the PY 2017 Wagner-Peyser Act final allotments 
(Table D). We also have attached the PY 2017 Workforce Information 
Grant table (Table E).
    Youth Activities Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2017 for 
WIOA Youth Activities totals $873,416,000. After reducing the 
appropriation by $2,488,000 for evaluations and $4,367,080 for program 
integrity, $866,560,920, is available for Youth Activities. Table A 
includes a breakdown of the Youth Activities program allotments for PY 
2017 and provides a comparison of these allotments to PY 2016 Youth 
Activities allotments for all States, and Outlying Areas. For the 
Native American Youth program, the total amount available is 1.5 
percent of the total amount for Youth Activities (after the evaluations 
and program integrity set asides), in accordance with WIOA section 127. 
The total funding available for the Outlying Areas was reserved at 0.25 
percent of the amount appropriated for Youth Activities (after the 
evaluations and program integrity set asides) after the amount reserved 
for Native American Youth (in accordance with WIOA section 
127(b)(1)(B)(i)). On December 17, 2003, Public Law 108-188, the Compact 
of Free Association Amendments Act of 2003 (``the Compact''), was 
signed into law. The Compact specified that the Republic of Palau 
remained eligible for WIA Title I funding. See 48 U.S.C. 
1921d(f)(1)(B)(ix). WIOA sec. 512(g)(1) updated the Compact to refer to 
WIOA funding. The Consolidated

[[Page 27528]]

Appropriations Act, 2017 (Division H, Title III, Section 305 of Pub. L. 
115-31) authorized WIOA Title I funding to Palau through FY 2017.
    Under WIA, the Secretary had discretion for determining the 
methodology for distributing funds to all Outlying Areas. Under WIOA 
the Secretary must disseminate the funds through a competitive process. 
For PY 2017, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 waives the 
competition requirement contained in WIOA secs. 127(b)(1)(B)(ii), 
132(b)(1)(A)(ii), and 132(b)(2)(A)(ii) regarding funding to Outlying 
Areas (e.g., American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern 
Mariana Islands, the Republic of Palau, and the United States Virgin 
Islands). For PY 2017, the Department used the same methodology used 
since PY 2000 (i.e., we distribute funds among the Outlying Areas by 
formula based on relative share of the number of unemployed, a minimum 
of 90 percent of the prior year allotment percentage, a $75,000 
minimum, and a 130 percent stop-gain of the prior year share). For the 
relative share calculation in PY 2017, the Department continued to use 
the data obtained from the 2010 Census for American Samoa, Guam, the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the United States 
Virgin Islands. For the Republic of Palau, the Department used data 
from Palau's 2015 Census.
    After the Department calculated the amount for the Outlying Areas 
and the Native American program, it was determined that the amount 
available for PY 2017 allotments to the States is $851,428,600. This 
total amount was below the required $1 billion threshold specified in 
WIOA sec. 127(b)(1)(C)(iv)(IV); therefore, the Department did not apply 
the WIOA additional minimum provisions. Instead, as required by WIOA, 
the minimums of 90 percent of the prior year allotment percentage and 
0.25 percent State minimum floor apply. This is the same methodology to 
set a floor on the annual variation in allotments as has been applied 
almost continuously for more than two decades. See sec. 262(b)(2) of 
the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) (Pub. L. 97-300), (as amended 
by sec. 207 of the Job Training Reform Amendments of 1992, Pub. L. 102-
367); sec. 127(b)(1)(C)(iv)(IV) of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 
(Pub. L. 105-220). WIOA also provides that no State may receive an 
allotment that is more than 130 percent of the allotment percentage for 
the State for the previous year. The three data factors required by 
WIOA sec. 127(b)(1)(C)(ii) for the PY 2017 Youth Activities State 
formula allotments are, summarized slightly, as follows:
    (1) The average number of unemployed individuals for Areas of 
Substantial Unemployment (ASUs) for the 12-month period, July 2015-June 
2016;
    (2) Number of excess unemployed individuals or the ASU excess 
(depending on which is higher) averages for the same 12-month period 
used for ASU unemployed data; and
    (3) Number of disadvantaged youth (age 16 to 21, excluding college 
students in the workforce and military) from special tabulations of 
data from the American Community Survey (ACS), which the Department 
obtained from the Census Bureau and used since PY 2013. The Census 
Bureau collected the data used in the special tabulations for 
disadvantaged youth between January 1, 2006-December 31, 2010.
    For purposes of identifying ASUs for the Youth Activities 
allotment) formula, the Department continued to use the data made 
available by BLS (as described in the Local Area Unemployment 
Statistics (LAUS) Technical Memorandum No. S-16-15). For purposes of 
determining the number of disadvantaged youth, the Department continued 
to use the special tabulations of ACS data available at http://www.doleta.gov/budget/disadvantagedYouthAdults.cfm.
    See TEGL No. 21-12 for further information.
    Adult Employment and Training Activities Allotments. The total 
appropriated funds for Adult Activities in PY 2017 is $815,556,000. 
After reducing the appropriated amount by $2,323,000 for evaluations 
and $4,077,780 for program integrity, $809,155,220 remains for Adult 
Activities, of which $807,132,332 is for States and $2,022,888 is for 
Outlying Areas. Table B shows the PY 2017 Adult Employment and Training 
Activities allotments and a State by State comparison of the PY 2017 
allotments to PY 2016 allotments.
    In accordance with WIOA, the Department reserved the total 
available for the Outlying Areas at 0.25 percent of the full amount 
appropriated for Adult Activities (after the evaluations and program 
integrity set asides). As discussed in the Youth Activities section 
above, in PY 2017 the Department will distribute the Adult Activities 
funding for the Outlying Areas, using the same principles, formula and 
data as used for Outlying Areas for Youth Activities. After determining 
the amount for the Outlying Areas, the Department used the statutory 
formula to distribute the remaining amount available for allotments to 
the States. The Department did not apply the WIOA minimum provisions 
for the PY 2017 allotments because the total amount available for the 
States was below the $960 million threshold required for Adult 
Activities in WIOA sec. 132(b)(1)(B)(iv)(IV). Instead, as required by 
WIOA, the minimums of 90 percent of the prior year allotment percentage 
and 0.25 percent State minimum floor apply. This is the same 
methodology to set a floor on the annual variation in allotments as has 
been applied almost continuously for more than two decades. See sec. 
262(b)(2) of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) (Pub. L. 97-300), 
(as amended by sec. 207 of the Job Training Reform Amendments of 1992, 
Pub. L. 102-367); sec. 127(b)(1)(C)(iv)(IV) of the Workforce Investment 
Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105-220). WIOA also provides that no State may 
receive an allotment that is more than 130 percent of the allotment 
percentage for the State for the previous year. The three formula data 
factors for the Adult Activities program are the same as those used for 
the Youth Activities formula, except the Department used data for the 
number of disadvantaged adults (age 22 to 72, excluding college 
students in the workforce and military).
    Dislocated Worker Employment and Training Activities Allotments. 
The amount appropriated for Dislocated Worker activities in PY 2017 
totals $1,241,719,000. The total appropriation includes formula funds 
for the States, while the National Reserve is used for National 
Dislocated Worker Grants, technical assistance and training, 
demonstration projects, and the Outlying Areas' Dislocated Worker 
allotments. After reducing the appropriated amount by $3,536,000 for 
evaluations and $6,208,595 for program integrity, a total of 
$1,231,974,405 remains available for Dislocated Worker activities. The 
amount available for Outlying Areas is $3,079,936, leaving $216,046,769 
for the National Reserve and a total of $1,012,847,700 available for 
States. Like the Adult program, Table C shows the PY 2017 Dislocated 
Worker activities allotments and a State by State comparison of the PY 
2017 allotments to PY 2016 allotments.
    Like the Adult Activities program, the Department reserved the 
total available for the Outlying Areas at 0.25 percent of the full 
amount appropriated for Dislocated Worker Activities (after the 
evaluations and program integrity set asides). Similar to Youth and 
Adult funds, instead of competition, in PY

[[Page 27529]]

2017 the Department will use the same pro rata share as the areas 
received for the PY 2017 WIOA Adult Activities program to distribute 
the Outlying Areas' Dislocated Worker funds, the same methodology used 
in PY 2016.
    The three data factors required in WIOA sec. 132(b)(2)(B)(ii) for 
the PY 2017 Dislocated Worker State formula allotments are, summarized 
slightly, as follows:
    (1) Number of unemployed, averages for the 12-month period, October 
2015-September 2016;
    (2) Number of excess unemployed, averages for the 12-month period, 
October 2015-September 2016; and
    (3) Number of long-term unemployed, averages for the 12-month 
period, October 2015-September 2016.
    In PY 2017, under WIOA the Dislocated Worker formula uses minimum 
and maximum provisions. No State may receive an allotment that is less 
than 90 percent of the State's prior year allotment percentage or more 
than 130 percent of the State's prior year allotment percentage.
    Wagner-Peyser Act ES Final Allotments. The appropriated level for 
PY 2017 for ES grants totals $671,413,000. After reducing the 
appropriated amount by $1,826,000 for evaluations and $3,357,065 for 
program integrity, a total of $666,229,935 remains available for ES 
programs. After determining the funding for Outlying Areas, the 
Department calculated allotments to States using the formula set forth 
at section 6 of the Wagner-Peyser Act (29 U.S.C. 49e). The Department 
based PY 2017 formula allotments on each State's share of calendar year 
2016 monthly averages of the civilian labor force (CLF) and 
unemployment. Section 6(b)(4) of the Wagner-Peyser Act requires the 
Secretary to set aside up to three percent of the total funds available 
for ES to ensure that each State will have sufficient resources to 
maintain statewide ES activities. In accordance with this provision, 
the Department included the three percent set aside funds in this total 
allotment. The Department distributed the set-aside funds in two steps 
to States that have experienced a reduction in their relative share of 
the total resources available this year from their relative share of 
the total resources available the previous year. In Step 1, States that 
have a CLF below one million and are also below the median CLF density 
were maintained at 100 percent of their relative share of prior year 
resources. ETA calculated the median CLF density based on CLF data 
provided by the BLS for calendar year 2016. All remaining set-aside 
funds were distributed on a pro-rata basis in Step 2 to all other 
States experiencing reductions in relative share from the prior year 
but not meeting the size and density criteria for Step 1. The 
distribution of ES funds (Table D) includes $664,605,898 for States, as 
well as $1,624,037 for Outlying Areas.
    Section 7(a) of the Wagner-Peyser Act (49 U.S.C. 49f(a)) authorizes 
States to use 90 percent of funds allotted to a State for labor 
exchange services and other career services such as job search and 
placement services to job seekers; appropriate recruitment services for 
employers; program evaluations; developing and providing labor market 
and occupational information; developing management information 
systems; and administering the work test for unemployment insurance 
claimants. Section 7(b) of the Wagner-Peyser Act states that 10 percent 
of the total sums allotted to each State must be reserved for use by 
the Governor to provide performance incentives for public ES offices 
and programs, provide services for groups with special needs, and to 
provide for the extra costs of exemplary models for delivering services 
of the type described in section 7(a).
    Workforce Information Grants Allotments. Total PY 2017 funding for 
Workforce Information Grants allotments to States is $32,000,000. After 
reducing the total by $160,000 for program integrity, $31,840,000 is 
available for Workforce Information Grants. The allotment figures for 
each State are listed in Table E. Funds are distributed by 
administrative formula, with a reserve of $176,416 for Guam and the 
United States Virgin Islands. Guam and the United States Virgin Islands 
allotment amounts are partially based on CLF data. The Department 
distributes the remaining funds to the States with 40 percent 
distributed equally to all States and 60 percent distributed based on 
each State's share of CLF for the 12 months ending September 2016.
