ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This Notice announces allotments for Program Year (PY) 2019 for the WIOA Title I Section 167 National Farmworker Jobs Program, as required under Section 182(d) of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014. The Department of Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act, 2019, and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019, enacted September 28, 2018, provides $82,447,000 for formula grants and another $5,922,000 for migrant and seasonal farmworker housing (of which not less than 70 percent shall be for permanent housing). Another $527,000 will be set aside for discretionary purposes. The formula was developed for the purpose of distributing funds geographically by State service area, on the basis of each State service area’s relative share of persons eligible for the program. The formula’s methodology was described in a notice published in the Federal Register on May 19, 1999 (64 FR 27390). That information is accessible at https:// www.federalregister.gov/. Beginning with PY 2018, ETA incorporated two modifications to the allotment formula, with the goal of providing more accurate estimates of each State service area’s relative share of persons eligible for the program. The formula also used updated data from each of the four data files serving as the basis of the formula since 1999. Based on the new estimates, the Department of Labor (DOL or Department) instituted a hold-harmless provision for PY 2018 and two following years. The holdharmless provision is designed to provide a staged transition from old to new funding levels for State service areas and minimize the impact on those states incurring significant change. DATES: The PY 2019 NFJP allotments become effective July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.
