What is consequential is the fact that Respondent is not currently authorized to dispense controlled substances in Texas, the State in which it is registered.3 See GX2 to Govt. Mot. (Sept. 15, 2017 TSBP Order), at 4–5. Accordingly, Respondent is not entitled to maintain its DEA registration. I will therefore adopt the CALJ’s recommendation that I revoke Respondent’s registration and deny any pending applications to renew its registration. R.D. at 6. I will also deny any pending application to modify its registration, or any pending application for any other DEA registration in Texas, as requested in the Show Cause Order. Order to Show Cause, at 1. Order Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f) and 824(a), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b), I order that DEA Certificate of Registration No. FH1729942, issued to Health Fit Pharmacy, be, and it hereby is, revoked. I further order that any pending application of Health Fit Pharmacy to renew or modify the above registration, or any pending application of Health Fit Pharmacy for any other DEA registration in the State of Texas, be, and it hereby is, denied. This Order is effective immediately.4 Dated: May 17, 2018. Robert W. Patterson, Acting Administrator. [FR Doc. 2018–11268 Filed 5–24–18; 8:45 am] amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 BILLING CODE 4410–09–P 3 In its brief opposing summary disposition, Respondent argued that the TSBP ‘‘abused it’s [sic] discretion in granting the temporary suspension . . . because the evidence shows that an agent of the DEA entrapped the Pharmacy in[to] committing a violation of the Controlled Substance[s] Act by intentionally failing to inform the Registrant that’’ it was filling prescriptions for a practitioner who ‘‘was not authorized to issue these prescriptions.’’ Resp. Br. at 2. Respondent’s claim relates to its challenge to the merits of the TSBP’s decision to suspend Respondent’s Texas pharmacy license, and I agree with the CALJ that Respondent has failed to show why or how this claim relates to whether Respondent is currently authorized to dispense controlled substances in the State of Texas. See R.D. at 3 n.1. 4 For the same reasons which led the TSBP to suspend Respondent’s Texas pharmacy license, I conclude that the public interest necessitates that this Order be effective immediately. 21 CFR 1316.67. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:28 May 24, 2018 Jkt 241001 Employment and Training Administration Program Year (PY) 2018 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Allotments; PY 2018 Wagner-Peyser Act Final Allotments and PY 2018 Workforce Information Grants Employment and Training Administration, Labor. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces allotments for PY 2018 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 2018 and the allotments of Workforce Information Grants to States for PY 2018. 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 awarded rather than based on a formula determined by the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) as occurred under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). However, for PY 2018, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 waives the competition requirement, and the Secretary is using the discretionary formula rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2018 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 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 2018 is the same formula used in PY 2017 and is described in the section on Youth Activities program allotments. The Department invites comments only on the formula used to allot funds to the Outlying Areas. DATES: The Department must receive comments on the formula used to allot funds to the Outlying Areas by June 25, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department is announcing WIOA allotments for PY 2018 for Youth Activities, Adults and Dislocated Worker Activities, Wagner-Peyser Act PY 2018 final allotments, and PY 2018 Workforce Information Grant allotments. This notice provides information on the amount of funds available during PY 2018 to states with an approved WIOA Combined or Unified State Plan, and information regarding allotments to the Outlying Areas. On March 23, 2018, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, Public Law 115–141 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, ETA separately managed funds for ETA evaluations and demonstrations. That separate authority has been replaced by the set aside provision. The Department transfers the funds to the Department’s Chief Evaluation Office to implement formal evaluations and demonstrations in collaboration with ETA. For 2018, the Secretary set aside 0.125 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, 2018, 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 2018, the Department set aside 0.3 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 2018 allotments for programs VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:28 May 24, 2018 Jkt 241001 under WIOA Title I Youth Activities (Table A), Adult and Dislocated Workers Employment and Training Activities (Tables B and C, respectively), and the PY 2018 Wagner-Peyser Act final allotments (Table D). We also have attached the PY 2018 Workforce Information Grant table (Table E). Youth Activities Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2018 for WIOA Youth Activities totals $903,416,000. After reducing the appropriation by $1,129,000 for evaluations and $2,710,000 for program integrity, $899,577,000, is available for Youth Activities. Table A includes a breakdown of the Youth Activities program allotments for PY 2018 and provides a comparison of these allotments to PY 2017 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 Appropriations Act, 2018 (Division H, Title III, Section 305 of Pub. L. 115–141) authorized WIOA Title I funding to Palau through FY 2018. Under WIA, the Secretary had discretion for determining the methodology for distributing funds to all Outlying Areas. Under WIOA the Secretary must award the funds through a competitive process. However, for PY 2018, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 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 2018, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24351 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 2018, 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. The Department will accept comments on this methodology. After the Department calculated the amount for the Outlying Areas and the Native American program, the amount available for PY 2018 allotments to the states is $883,868,137. This total amount is 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. The Department used this same methodology to set a floor on the annual variation in allotments 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 2018 Youth Activities state formula allotments are, summarized slightly, as follows: (1) The average number of unemployed individuals in Areas of Substantial Unemployment (ASUs) for the 12-month period, July 2016–June 2017 in each state compared to the total number of unemployed individuals in ASUs for all states; (2) Number of excess unemployed individuals or excess unemployed individuals in ASUs (depending on which is higher) averages for the same 12-month period used for ASU unemployed data compared to the total excess number in all states; and (3) Number of disadvantaged youth (age 16 to 21, excluding college students not in the workforce and military) from special tabulations of data from the American Community Survey (ACS), which the Department obtained from the Census Bureau in each state E:\FR\FM\25MYN1.SGM 25MYN1 amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 24352 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 102 / Friday, May 25, 2018 / Notices compared to the total number of disadvantaged youth in all states. The Department requested updated special tabulations for PY 2018. Census Bureau collected the data used in the special tabulations for disadvantaged youth between January 1, 2011–December 31, 2015. 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–17–18). For purposes of determining the number of disadvantaged youth, the Department used the special tabulations of ACS data available at http://www.doleta.gov/ budget/disadvantagedYouthAdults.cfm. See TEGL No. 14–17 for further information. Adult Employment and Training Activities Allotments. The total appropriated funds for Adult Activities in PY 2018 is $845,556,000. After reducing the appropriated amount by $890,000 for evaluations and $2,136,000 for program integrity, $842,530,000 remains for Adult Activities, of which $840,423,675 is for states and $2,106,325 is for Outlying Areas. Table B shows the PY 2018 Adult Employment and Training Activities allotments and a state-by-state comparison of the PY 2018 allotments to PY 2017 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 2018 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. The Department will accept comments on this methodology. 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 2018 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. As noted above, the Department applied this same methodology to set a floor on the annual VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:28 May 24, 2018 Jkt 241001 variation in allotments almost continuously for more than two decades. 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 not in the workforce and military). Dislocated Worker Employment and Training Activities Allotments. The amount appropriated for Dislocated Worker activities in PY 2018 totals $1,261,719,000. 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 $1,325,000 for evaluations and $3,180,000 for program integrity, a total of $1,257,214,000 remains available for Dislocated Worker activities. The amount available for Outlying Areas is $3,143,035, leaving $216,865,965 for the National Reserve and a total of $1,037,205,000 available for states. As for the Adult program, Table C shows the PY 2018 Dislocated Worker activities allotments and a stateby-state comparison of the PY 2018 allotments to PY 2017 allotments. As for 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 2018 the Department will use the same pro rata share as the areas received for the PY 2018 WIOA Adult Activities program to distribute the Outlying Areas’ Dislocated Worker funds, the same methodology used in PY 2017. The Department will accept comments on this methodology. The three data factors required in WIOA sec. 132(b)(2)(B)(ii) for the PY 2018 Dislocated Worker state formula allotments are, summarized slightly, as follows: (1) Relative number of unemployed, averages for the 12-month period, October 2016–September 2017; (2) Relative number of excess unemployed individuals, averages for the 12-month period, October 2016– September 2017; and PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (3) Relative number of long-term unemployed, averages for the 12-month period, October 2016–September 2017. In PY 2018, 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 2018 for ES grants totals $666,413,000. After reducing the appropriated amount by $833,000 for evaluations and $1,999,000 for program integrity, a total of $663,581,000 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 2018 formula allotments on each state’s share of calendar year 2017 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 2017. The Department distributed all remaining set-aside funds 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 $661,963,420 for states, as well as $1,617,580 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; E:\FR\FM\25MYN1.SGM 25MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 102 / Friday, May 25, 2018 / Notices 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) and models for enhancing professional development and career advancement opportunities of state agency staff. Workforce Information Grants Allotments. Total PY 2018 funding for Workforce Information Grants allotments to states is $32,000,000. After reducing the total by $96,000 for program integrity, $31,904,000 is available for Workforce Information Grants. Table E contains the allotment 24353 figures for each state and Outlying Area. The Department distributes the funds by administrative formula, with a reserve of $176,570 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 2017.

SUMMARY: The Department of Labor (DOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning a proposed extension for the authority to conduct the information collection request (ICR) titled, ‘‘Reintegration of Ex-Offenders Adult Reporting System.’’ This comment request is part of continuing Departmental efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA). DATES: Consideration will be given to all written comments received by July 24, 2018. ADDRESSES: A copy of this ICR with applicable supporting documentation, including a description of the likely respondents, proposed frequency of response, and estimated total burden, may be obtained free by contacting Derrick Williams by telephone at 202– 693–3931 (this is not a toll-free VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:28 May 24, 2018 Jkt 241001 number), TTY/TDD by calling the tollfree Federal Information Relay Service at 1–877–889–5627, or by email at Williams.Derrick.D@dol.gov. Submit written comments about, or requests for a copy of, this ICR by mail or courier to the U.S. Department of Labor, Division of Youth Services, Room N–4508, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20210; by email: Williams.Derrick.D@dol.gov; or by Fax: 202–693–3113. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Contact Derrick Williams by telephone at 202–693–3931 (this is not a toll-free number) or by email at Williams.Derrick.D@dol.gov. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before submitting them to the OMB for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly assessed. In applying for the Reentry Employment Opportunities (REO) ExOffender-Adult grants, applicants agree to submit participant data and quarterly aggregate reports for individuals who receive services through REO-Adult programs. The reports include aggregate PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 data on demographic characteristics, types of services received, placements, outcomes, and follow-up status. Specifically, they summarize data on participants who received employment and placement services, mentoring, and other services essential to reintegrating ex-offenders through REO-Adult programs. The Department requests a revision of the currently approved information collection to meet the reporting and record-keeping requirements of the REO Ex-OffendersAdult grants through an ETA-provided, Web-based Management Information System (MIS). The Department also requests an increase in the burden hours and additional data items because DOL is now awarding a larger number of adult versus juvenile offender grants. This information collection is conducted under the authority of Section 185(a)(2) of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act which requires recipients of funds under Title I to maintain such records and submit such reports as the Secretary requires regarding the performance of programs and activities carried out under this title. This information collection maintains a reporting and recordkeeping system for a minimum level of information collection that is necessary to: comply with Equal Opportunity requirements; hold REO-Adult grantees appropriately accountable for the Federal funds they receive, including common performance measures; and allow the Department to fulfill its oversight and management responsibilities.

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

Employment and Training Administration


Program Year (PY) 2018 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act 
(WIOA) Allotments; PY 2018 Wagner-Peyser Act Final Allotments and PY 
2018 Workforce Information Grants

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces allotments for PY 2018 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 2018 and the allotments of Workforce Information 
Grants to States for PY 2018.
    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 awarded rather than based on a formula determined by the 
Secretary of Labor (Secretary) as occurred under the Workforce 
Investment Act (WIA). However, for PY 2018, the Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2018 waives the competition requirement, and the 
Secretary is using the discretionary formula rationale and methodology 
for allocating PY 2018 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 
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 2018 is the same formula used in PY 2017 and 
is described in the section on Youth Activities program allotments. The 
Department invites comments only on the formula used to allot funds to 
the Outlying Areas.

DATES: The Department must receive comments on the formula used to 
allot funds to the Outlying Areas by June 25, 2018.

ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to the Employment and Training 
Administration (ETA), Office of Financial Administration, 200 
Constitution Avenue NW, Room N-4702, Washington, DC 20210, Attention: 
Ms. Anita Harvey, email: [email protected].
    Commenters are advised that mail delivery in the Washington area 
may be delayed due to security concerns. The Department will receive 
hand-delivered comments at the above address. All overnight mail will 
be considered hand-delivered and must be received at the designated 
place by the date specified above.
    Please submit your comments by only one method. The Department will 
not review comments received by means other than those listed above or 
that it receives after the comment period has closed.
    Comments: The Department will retain all comments on this notice 
and will release them upon request via email to any member of the 
public. The Department also will make all the comments it receives 
available for public inspection by appointment during normal business 
hours at the above address. If you need assistance to review the 
comments, the Department will provide you with appropriate aids such as 
readers or print magnifiers. The Department will make copies of this 
notice available, upon request, in large print, Braille, and electronic 
file. The Department also will consider providing the notice in other 
formats upon request. To schedule an appointment to review the comments 
and/or obtain the notice in an alternative format, contact Ms. Harvey 
using the information provided above. The Department will retain all 
comments received without making any changes to the comments, including

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department is announcing WIOA allotments 
for PY 2018 for Youth Activities, Adults and Dislocated Worker 
Activities, Wagner-Peyser Act PY 2018 final allotments, and PY 2018 
Workforce Information Grant allotments. This notice provides 
information on the amount of funds available during PY 2018 to states 
with an approved WIOA Combined or Unified State Plan, and information 
regarding allotments to the Outlying Areas.
    On March 23, 2018, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, 
Public Law 115-141 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, 
ETA separately managed funds for ETA evaluations and demonstrations. 
That separate authority has been replaced by the set aside provision. 
The Department transfers the funds to the Department's Chief Evaluation 
Office to implement formal evaluations and demonstrations in 
collaboration with ETA. For 2018, the Secretary set aside 0.125 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, 2018, 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 2018, the Department set aside 0.3 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 2018 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 2018 Wagner-Peyser Act final allotments 
(Table D). We also have attached the PY 2018 Workforce Information 
Grant table (Table E).
    Youth Activities Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2018 for 
WIOA Youth Activities totals $903,416,000. After reducing the 
appropriation by $1,129,000 for evaluations and $2,710,000 for program 
integrity, $899,577,000, is available for Youth Activities. Table A 
includes a breakdown of the Youth Activities program allotments for PY 
2018 and provides a comparison of these allotments to PY 2017 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 Appropriations Act, 2018 (Division H, 
Title III, Section 305 of Pub. L. 115-141) authorized WIOA Title I 
funding to Palau through FY 2018.
    Under WIA, the Secretary had discretion for determining the 
methodology for distributing funds to all Outlying Areas. Under WIOA 
the Secretary must award the funds through a competitive process. 
However, for PY 2018, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 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 2018, 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 2018, 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. The Department will accept comments on this 
methodology.
    After the Department calculated the amount for the Outlying Areas 
and the Native American program, the amount available for PY 2018 
allotments to the states is $883,868,137. This total amount is 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. The Department used this same 
methodology to set a floor on the annual variation in allotments 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 2018 Youth Activities state formula 
allotments are, summarized slightly, as follows:
    (1) The average number of unemployed individuals in Areas of 
Substantial Unemployment (ASUs) for the 12-month period, July 2016-June 
2017 in each state compared to the total number of unemployed 
individuals in ASUs for all states;
    (2) Number of excess unemployed individuals or excess unemployed 
individuals in ASUs (depending on which is higher) averages for the 
same 12-month period used for ASU unemployed data compared to the total 
excess number in all states; and
    (3) Number of disadvantaged youth (age 16 to 21, excluding college 
students not in the workforce and military) from special tabulations of 
data from the American Community Survey (ACS), which the Department 
obtained from the Census Bureau in each state

[[Page 24352]]

compared to the total number of disadvantaged youth in all states. The 
Department requested updated special tabulations for PY 2018. Census 
Bureau collected the data used in the special tabulations for 
disadvantaged youth between January 1, 2011-December 31, 2015.
    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-17-18). For purposes of determining the 
number of disadvantaged youth, the Department used the special 
tabulations of ACS data available at http://www.doleta.gov/budget/disadvantagedYouthAdults.cfm.
    See TEGL No. 14-17 for further information.
    Adult Employment and Training Activities Allotments. The total 
appropriated funds for Adult Activities in PY 2018 is $845,556,000. 
After reducing the appropriated amount by $890,000 for evaluations and 
$2,136,000 for program integrity, $842,530,000 remains for Adult 
Activities, of which $840,423,675 is for states and $2,106,325 is for 
Outlying Areas. Table B shows the PY 2018 Adult Employment and Training 
Activities allotments and a state-by-state comparison of the PY 2018 
allotments to PY 2017 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 2018 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. The Department 
will accept comments on this methodology. 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 
2018 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. As noted above, the Department applied this 
same methodology to set a floor on the annual variation in allotments 
almost continuously for more than two decades. 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 not in the workforce and military).
    Dislocated Worker Employment and Training Activities Allotments. 
The amount appropriated for Dislocated Worker activities in PY 2018 
totals $1,261,719,000. 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 $1,325,000 for 
evaluations and $3,180,000 for program integrity, a total of 
$1,257,214,000 remains available for Dislocated Worker activities. The 
amount available for Outlying Areas is $3,143,035, leaving $216,865,965 
for the National Reserve and a total of $1,037,205,000 available for 
states. As for the Adult program, Table C shows the PY 2018 Dislocated 
Worker activities allotments and a state-by-state comparison of the PY 
2018 allotments to PY 2017 allotments.
    As for 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 2018 the Department will use 
the same pro rata share as the areas received for the PY 2018 WIOA 
Adult Activities program to distribute the Outlying Areas' Dislocated 
Worker funds, the same methodology used in PY 2017. The Department will 
accept comments on this methodology.
    The three data factors required in WIOA sec. 132(b)(2)(B)(ii) for 
the PY 2018 Dislocated Worker state formula allotments are, summarized 
slightly, as follows:
    (1) Relative number of unemployed, averages for the 12-month 
period, October 2016-September 2017;
    (2) Relative number of excess unemployed individuals, averages for 
the 12-month period, October 2016-September 2017; and
    (3) Relative number of long-term unemployed, averages for the 12-
month period, October 2016-September 2017.
    In PY 2018, 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 2018 for ES grants totals $666,413,000. After reducing the 
appropriated amount by $833,000 for evaluations and $1,999,000 for 
program integrity, a total of $663,581,000 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 2018 formula allotments on each state's share of calendar year 
2017 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 2017. The Department distributed 
all remaining set-aside funds 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 $661,963,420 for states, as 
well as $1,617,580 for Outlying Areas.
    Section 7(a) of the Wagner-Peyser Act (49 U.S.C. Sec.  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;

[[Page 24353]]

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) and models for enhancing professional development and 
career advancement opportunities of state agency staff.
    Workforce Information Grants Allotments. Total PY 2018 funding for 
Workforce Information Grants allotments to states is $32,000,000. After 
reducing the total by $96,000 for program integrity, $31,904,000 is 
available for Workforce Information Grants. Table E contains the 
allotment figures for each state and Outlying Area. The Department 
distributes the funds by administrative formula, with a reserve of 
$176,570 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 2017.
