This submission covers the information collection included in the exemption for foreign exchange transactions executed pursuant to standing instructions, which was granted on November 13, 1998. The Department has received approval from OMB for this ICR under OMB Control No. 1210–0111. The current approval is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2020. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:00 Apr 28, 2020 Jkt 250001 PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Appropriations Act, 2020 waives the competition requirement, and the Secretary is using the discretionary formula rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2020 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 2020 is the same formula used in PY 2019 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. The Department is announcing WIOA allotments for PY 2020 for Youth Activities, Adults and Dislocated Worker Activities, Wagner-Peyser Act PY 2020 allotments, and PY 2020 Workforce Information Grant allotments. This notice provides information on the amount of funds available during PY 2020 to states with an approved WIOA Combined or Unified State Plan, and information regarding allotments to the Outlying Areas. On December 20, 2019, the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020, Public Law 116–94 was signed into law (‘‘the Act’’). The Act, Division A, Title I, Sections 106(b) and 107 of the Act allows the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) to set aside up to 0.5 percent of each discretionary appropriation for activities related to program integrity and 0.75 percent of most operating funds for evaluations. For 2020, as authorized by the Act, the Department has set aside $818,000 of the Training and Employment Services (TES) appropriation for evaluations. ETA reserved these funds from the WIOA Adult, Youth, and Dislocated Worker program budgets. Any funds not utilized for these reserve activities will be provided to the states. We also have attached tables listing the PY 2020 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 2020 Wagner- E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 83 / Wednesday, April 29, 2020 / Notices Peyser Act allotments (Table D). We also have attached the PY 2020 Workforce Information Grant table (Table E). Youth Activities Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2020 for WIOA Youth Activities totals $913,130,000. After reducing the appropriation by $224,000 for evaluations, $912,906,000, is available for Youth Activities. Table A includes a breakdown of the Youth Activities program allotments for PY 2020 and provides a comparison of these allotments to PY 2019 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 set-aside), 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 set aside) 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 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018 (Division A, Title XII, Subtitle F, Section 1259C(c) of Pub. L. 115–91) authorized WIOA Title I funding to Palau through FY 2024. 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 2020, the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 waives the competition requirement 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 2020, 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 2020, the Department continued to use the data obtained from the 2010 Census for American Samoa, Guam, the VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:00 Apr 28, 2020 Jkt 250001 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 2020 allotments to the states is $896,964,379. 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. 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 2020 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 2018–June 2019 in each state compared to the total number of unemployed individuals in ASUs in 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 unemployed individuals or ASU 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 compared to the total number of disadvantaged youth in all states. ETA obtained updated data for use in PY 2018 and the same data must be used in PY 2020. The 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–19–15). For purposes of determining the number of disadvantaged youth, the Department used the special tabulations of ACS data available at: https://www.dol.gov/ PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23859 agencies/eta/budget/formula/ disadvantagedyouthadults. See TEGL No. 14–17 for further information. Adult Employment and Training Activities Allotments. The total appropriated funds for Adult Activities in PY 2020 is $854,649,000. After reducing the appropriated amount by $175,000 for evaluations, $854,474,000 remains for Adult Activities, of which $852,337,815 is for states and $2,136,185 is for Outlying Areas. Table B shows the PY 2020 Adult Employment and Training Activities allotments and a state-by-state comparison of the PY 2020 allotments to PY 2019 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 setaside). As discussed in the Youth Activities section above, in PY 2020 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 2020 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. 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 2020 totals $1,322,912,000. 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, Workforce Opportunity for Rural Communities, E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1 23860 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 83 / Wednesday, April 29, 2020 / Notices Community College Grants, and the Outlying Areas’ Dislocated Worker allotments. After reducing the appropriated amount by $419,000 for evaluations, a total of $1,322,493,000 remains available for Dislocated Worker activities. The amount available for Outlying Areas is $3,306,233, leaving $267,473,767 for the National Reserve and a total of $1,051,713,000 available for states. Table C shows the PY 2020 Dislocated Worker activities allotments and a state-by-state comparison of the PY 2020 allotments to PY 2019 allotments. Similar to 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 setaside). Similar to Youth and Adult funds, instead of competition, in PY 2020 the Department will use the same pro rata share as the areas received for the PY 2020 WIOA Adult Activities program to distribute the Outlying Areas’ Dislocated Worker funds, the same methodology used in PY 2019. The Department will accept comments on this methodology. The three data factors required in WIOA sec. 132(b)(2)(B)(ii) for the PY 2020 Dislocated Worker state formula allotments are, summarized slightly, as follows: (1) Relative number of unemployed individuals in each state, compared to the total number of unemployed individuals in all states, for the 12month period, October 2018–September 2019; (2) Relative number of excess unemployed individuals in each state, compared to the total excess number of unemployed individuals in all states, for the 12-month period, October 2018– September 2019; and (3) Relative number of long-term unemployed individuals in each state, compared to the total number of longterm unemployed individuals in all states, for the 12-month period, October 2018–September 2019. In PY 2020, 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 (stop loss) or more than 130 percent of the state’s prior year allotment percentage (stop gain). Low unemployment rates in the states have impacted the excess unemployment data factor in the WIOA Dislocated Worker formula. The excess unemployment rate of 4.5 percent and low unemployment result in all states triggering either their statutorily required stop loss or stop gain provision, with some PY 2020 funding undistributed. WIOA specifically prohibits distributing an amount to a state that is more than its stop gain limit. Based on this statutory limitation, the Department distributed the remaining balance of funds according to the formula driven relative share of all states triggering the stop loss provision. Wagner-Peyser Act ES Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2020 for ES grants totals $668,052,000. After determining the funding for Guam and the United States Virgin Islands, 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 2020 formula allotments on each state’s share of calendar year 2019 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 2019. 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 $666,423,522 for states, as well as $1,628,478 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 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 2020 funding for Workforce Information Grants allotments to states is $32,000,000. Table E contains the allotment figures for each state and Outlying Area. The Department distributes the funds by administrative formula, with a reserve of $176,800 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 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: WIOA allotments for states and the state 
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 2020, the Further 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 waives the competition 
requirement, and the Secretary is using the discretionary formula 
rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2020 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 2020 is the same formula used in PY 
2019 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.
    The Department is announcing WIOA allotments for PY 2020 for Youth 
Activities, Adults and Dislocated Worker Activities, Wagner-Peyser Act 
PY 2020 allotments, and PY 2020 Workforce Information Grant allotments. 
This notice provides information on the amount of funds available 
during PY 2020 to states with an approved WIOA Combined or Unified 
State Plan, and information regarding allotments to the Outlying Areas.
    On December 20, 2019, the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2020, Public Law 116-94 was signed into law (``the Act''). The Act, 
Division A, Title I, Sections 106(b) and 107 of the Act allows the 
Secretary of Labor (Secretary) to set aside up to 0.5 percent of each 
discretionary appropriation for activities related to program integrity 
and 0.75 percent of most operating funds for evaluations. For 2020, as 
authorized by the Act, the Department has set aside $818,000 of the 
Training and Employment Services (TES) appropriation for evaluations. 
ETA reserved these funds from the WIOA Adult, Youth, and Dislocated 
Worker program budgets. Any funds not utilized for these reserve 
activities will be provided to the states. We also have attached tables 
listing the PY 2020 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 2020 
Wagner-

[[Page 23859]]

Peyser Act allotments (Table D). We also have attached the PY 2020 
Workforce Information Grant table (Table E).
    Youth Activities Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2020 for 
WIOA Youth Activities totals $913,130,000. After reducing the 
appropriation by $224,000 for evaluations, $912,906,000, is available 
for Youth Activities. Table A includes a breakdown of the Youth 
Activities program allotments for PY 2020 and provides a comparison of 
these allotments to PY 2019 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 set-aside), 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 set aside) 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 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
2018 (Division A, Title XII, Subtitle F, Section 1259C(c) of Pub. L. 
115-91) authorized WIOA Title I funding to Palau through FY 2024.
    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 2020, the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 
waives the competition requirement 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 2020, 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 2020, 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 2020 
allotments to the states is $896,964,379. 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. 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 2020 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 2018-June 
2019 in each state compared to the total number of unemployed 
individuals in ASUs in 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 unemployed individuals or ASU 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 compared to the total 
number of disadvantaged youth in all states. ETA obtained updated data 
for use in PY 2018 and the same data must be used in PY 2020. The 
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-19-15). For purposes of determining the 
number of disadvantaged youth, the Department used the special 
tabulations of ACS data available at: https://www.dol.gov/agencies/eta/budget/formula/disadvantagedyouthadults.
    See TEGL No. 14-17 for further information.
    Adult Employment and Training Activities Allotments. The total 
appropriated funds for Adult Activities in PY 2020 is $854,649,000. 
After reducing the appropriated amount by $175,000 for evaluations, 
$854,474,000 remains for Adult Activities, of which $852,337,815 is for 
states and $2,136,185 is for Outlying Areas. Table B shows the PY 2020 
Adult Employment and Training Activities allotments and a state-by-
state comparison of the PY 2020 allotments to PY 2019 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 set-aside). As 
discussed in the Youth Activities section above, in PY 2020 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 2020 
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. 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 2020 
totals $1,322,912,000. 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, Workforce Opportunity for Rural Communities,

[[Page 23860]]

Community College Grants, and the Outlying Areas' Dislocated Worker 
allotments. After reducing the appropriated amount by $419,000 for 
evaluations, a total of $1,322,493,000 remains available for Dislocated 
Worker activities. The amount available for Outlying Areas is 
$3,306,233, leaving $267,473,767 for the National Reserve and a total 
of $1,051,713,000 available for states. Table C shows the PY 2020 
Dislocated Worker activities allotments and a state-by-state comparison 
of the PY 2020 allotments to PY 2019 allotments.
    Similar to 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 set-aside). Similar to Youth and Adult funds, instead of 
competition, in PY 2020 the Department will use the same pro rata share 
as the areas received for the PY 2020 WIOA Adult Activities program to 
distribute the Outlying Areas' Dislocated Worker funds, the same 
methodology used in PY 2019. The Department will accept comments on 
this methodology.
    The three data factors required in WIOA sec. 132(b)(2)(B)(ii) for 
the PY 2020 Dislocated Worker state formula allotments are, summarized 
slightly, as follows:
    (1) Relative number of unemployed individuals in each state, 
compared to the total number of unemployed individuals in all states, 
for the 12-month period, October 2018-September 2019;
    (2) Relative number of excess unemployed individuals in each state, 
compared to the total excess number of unemployed individuals in all 
states, for the 12-month period, October 2018-September 2019; and
    (3) Relative number of long-term unemployed individuals in each 
state, compared to the total number of long-term unemployed individuals 
in all states, for the 12-month period, October 2018-September 2019.
    In PY 2020, 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 (stop 
loss) or more than 130 percent of the state's prior year allotment 
percentage (stop gain).
    Low unemployment rates in the states have impacted the excess 
unemployment data factor in the WIOA Dislocated Worker formula. The 
excess unemployment rate of 4.5 percent and low unemployment result in 
all states triggering either their statutorily required stop loss or 
stop gain provision, with some PY 2020 funding undistributed. WIOA 
specifically prohibits distributing an amount to a state that is more 
than its stop gain limit. Based on this statutory limitation, the 
Department distributed the remaining balance of funds according to the 
formula driven relative share of all states triggering the stop loss 
provision.
    Wagner-Peyser Act ES Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2020 
for ES grants totals $668,052,000. After determining the funding for 
Guam and the United States Virgin Islands, 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 2020 formula 
allotments on each state's share of calendar year 2019 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 2019. 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 $666,423,522 for states, as well as 
$1,628,478 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) and models for enhancing 
professional development and career advancement opportunities of state 
agency staff.
    Workforce Information Grants Allotments. Total PY 2020 funding for 
Workforce Information Grants allotments to states is $32,000,000. Table 
E contains the allotment figures for each state and Outlying Area. The 
Department distributes the funds by administrative formula, with a 
reserve of $176,800 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 2019.
