ACTION: Notice. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: This notice announces changes in benefit period eligibility under the EB program that have occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding the States’ EB status: • Nevada completed the mandatory 13-week ‘‘off’’ period for a High Unemployment Period (HUP) on March 27, 2021, and based on the data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on January 26, 2021, the seasonallyadjusted total unemployment rate (TUR) for Nevada continued to exceed the 8.0 percent threshold necessary to trigger ‘‘on’’ to an HUP. Therefore, on March 28, 2021 the maximum potential entitlement for claimants in the EB program will increase from 13 weeks to 20 weeks. • Based on data released on March 15, 2021 by BLS, the seasonallyadjusted 3-month average TUR for Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Massachusetts and New Mexico rose above the 8.0 percent threshold necessary to trigger ‘‘on’’ to an HUP. Beginning April 4, 2021 the maximum potential entitlement for claimants in the EB program for these states increased from 13 weeks to 20 weeks. • Based on data released by BLS on March 26, 2021: Æ The seasonally-adjusted TUR for Michigan fell below the 6.5 percent threshold necessary to remain ‘‘on’’ EB. The payable period for Michigan in the EB program will end on April 17, 2021. The state will remain in an ‘‘off’’ period for a minimum of 13 weeks. Æ the seasonally-adjusted TUR for New Jersey fell below the 8.0 percent threshold necessary to remain ‘‘on’’ an HUP in the EB program. Beginning April 18, 2021, the maximum potential VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Apr 26, 2021 entitlement for claimants in New Jersey will decrease from 20 weeks to 13 weeks. The trigger notice covering state eligibility for the EB program can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/ unemploy/claims_arch.as. Jkt 253001 The duration of benefits payable in the EB program, and the terms and conditions on which they are payable, are governed by the Federal-State Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970, as amended, and the operating instructions issued to the states by the U.S. Department of Labor. In the case of a state beginning an EB period, the State Workforce Agency will furnish a written notice of potential entitlement to each individual who has exhausted all rights to regular benefits and is potentially eligible for EB (20 CFR 615.13 (c) (1)). Persons who believe they may be entitled to EB, or who wish to inquire about their rights under the program, should contact their State Workforce Agency.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department is announcing WIOA allotments for PY 2021 for Youth Activities, Adults and Dislocated Worker Activities, Wagner-Peyser Act PY 2021 allotments, and PY 2021 Workforce Information Grant allotments. This notice provides information on the amount of funds available during PY 2021 to states with an approved WIOA Combined or Unified State Plan, and information regarding allotments to the Outlying Areas. 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 2021, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 waives the competition requirement, and the Secretary is using the discretionary formula rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2021 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 2021 is the same formula used in PY 2020 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. On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, Public Law 116–260 was signed into law (‘‘the Act’’). The Act, Division H, Title I, Sections 106(b) and 107 of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Apr 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 2021, as authorized by the Act, the Department has set aside $7,466,000 of the Training and Employment Services (TES) and $1,849,000 of the State Unemployment Insurance and Employment Services Operations (SUIESO) appropriations impacted in this FRN for these activities. ETA reserved these funds from the WIOA Adult, Youth, Dislocated Worker, Wagner-Peyser Act Employment Service, and Workforce Information Grant program budgets. Any funds not utilized for these reserve activities will be provided to the states. We also have attached tables listing the PY 2021 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 2021 Wagner-Peyser Act allotments (Table D). We also have attached the PY 2021 Workforce Information Grant table (Table E). Youth Activities Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2021 for WIOA Youth Activities totals $921,130,000. After reducing the appropriation by $2,553,000 for set asides authorized by the Act, $918,577,000 is available for Youth Activities. Table A includes a breakdown of the Youth Activities program allotments for PY 2021 and provides a comparison of these allotments to PY 2020 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 set asides authorized by the Act), 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 set asides authorized by the Act) 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. PO 00000 Frm 00140 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22269 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 2021, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 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 2021, 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 2021, 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 2021 allotments to the states is $902,536,349. 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 2021 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 2019—June 2020 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 E:\FR\FM\27APN1.SGM 27APN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 22270 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 79 / Tuesday, April 27, 2021 / Notices 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 2021. 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–20–15). 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 2021 is $862,649,000. After reducing the appropriated amount by $1,974,000 for set asides authorized by the Act, $860,675,000 remains for Adult Activities, of which $858,523,312 is for states and $2,151,688 is for Outlying Areas. Table B shows the PY 2021 Adult Employment and Training Activities allotments and a state-by-state comparison of the PY 2021 allotments to PY 2020 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 set asides authorized by the Act). As discussed in the Youth Activities section above, in PY 2021 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 2021 allotments because the total amount available for the states was below the $960 million threshold required for Adult Activities in WIOA VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Apr 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 2021 totals $1,342,412,000. 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, Community College Grants, and the Outlying Areas’ Dislocated Worker allotments. After reducing the appropriated amount by $2,939,000 for set asides authorized by the Act, a total of $1,339,473,000 remains available for Dislocated Worker activities. The amount available for Outlying Areas is $3,348,683, leaving $276,955,317 for the National Reserve and a total of $1,059,169,000 available for states. Table C shows the PY 2021 Dislocated Worker activities allotments and a stateby-state comparison of the PY 2021 allotments to PY 2020 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 set asides authorized by the Act). Similar to Youth and Adult funds, instead of competition, in PY 2021 the Department will use the same pro rata share as the areas received for the PY 2021 WIOA Adult Activities program to distribute the Outlying Areas’ Dislocated Worker funds, the same methodology used in PY 2020. The Department will accept comments on this methodology. The three data factors required in WIOA sec. 132(b)(2)(B)(ii) for the PY 2021 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 2019–September 2020; PO 00000 Frm 00141 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (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 2019– September 2020; 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 2019–September 2020. In PY 2021, 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). Wagner-Peyser Act ES Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2021 for ES grants totals $670,052,000. After reducing the appropriated amount by $1,799,000 for set asides authorized by the Act, $668,253,000 is available for ES grants. 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 WagnerPeyser Act (29 U.S.C. 49e). The Department based PY 2021 formula allotments on each state’s share of calendar year 2020 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 2020. 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 $666,624,032 for E:\FR\FM\27APN1.SGM 27APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 79 / Tuesday, April 27, 2021 / Notices states, as well as $1,628,968 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 2021 funding for Workforce Information Grants allotments to states is $32,000,000. After reducing the total by $50,000 for set 22271 asides authorized by the Act, $31,950,000 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 $176,680 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 2020.

However, for PY 2021, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 waives 
the competition requirement, and the Secretary is using the 
discretionary formula rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2021 
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 
2021 is the same formula used in PY 2020 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.
    On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, 
Public Law 116-260 was signed into law (``the Act''). The Act, Division 
H, 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 2021, as 
authorized by the Act, the Department has set aside $7,466,000 of the 
Training and Employment Services (TES) and $1,849,000 of the State 
Unemployment Insurance and Employment Services Operations (SUIESO) 
appropriations impacted in this FRN for these activities. ETA reserved 
these funds from the WIOA Adult, Youth, Dislocated Worker, Wagner-
Peyser Act Employment Service, and Workforce Information Grant program 
budgets. Any funds not utilized for these reserve activities will be 
provided to the states. We also have attached tables listing the PY 
2021 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 2021 Wagner-Peyser Act 
allotments (Table D). We also have attached the PY 2021 Workforce 
Information Grant table (Table E).
    Youth Activities Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2021 for 
WIOA Youth Activities totals $921,130,000. After reducing the 
appropriation by $2,553,000 for set asides authorized by the Act, 
$918,577,000 is available for Youth Activities. Table A includes a 
breakdown of the Youth Activities program allotments for PY 2021 and 
provides a comparison of these allotments to PY 2020 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 set asides authorized by the Act), 
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 set asides authorized by the 
Act) 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 2021, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 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 
2021, 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 2021, 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 2021 
allotments to the states is $902,536,349. 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 2021 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 2019--
June 2020 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

[[Page 22270]]

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 2021. 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-20-15). 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 2021 is $862,649,000. 
After reducing the appropriated amount by $1,974,000 for set asides 
authorized by the Act, $860,675,000 remains for Adult Activities, of 
which $858,523,312 is for states and $2,151,688 is for Outlying Areas. 
Table B shows the PY 2021 Adult Employment and Training Activities 
allotments and a state-by-state comparison of the PY 2021 allotments to 
PY 2020 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 set asides authorized by the 
Act). As discussed in the Youth Activities section above, in PY 2021 
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 2021 
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 2021 
totals $1,342,412,000. 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, 
Community College Grants, and the Outlying Areas' Dislocated Worker 
allotments. After reducing the appropriated amount by $2,939,000 for 
set asides authorized by the Act, a total of $1,339,473,000 remains 
available for Dislocated Worker activities. The amount available for 
Outlying Areas is $3,348,683, leaving $276,955,317 for the National 
Reserve and a total of $1,059,169,000 available for states. Table C 
shows the PY 2021 Dislocated Worker activities allotments and a state-
by-state comparison of the PY 2021 allotments to PY 2020 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 set asides 
authorized by the Act). Similar to Youth and Adult funds, instead of 
competition, in PY 2021 the Department will use the same pro rata share 
as the areas received for the PY 2021 WIOA Adult Activities program to 
distribute the Outlying Areas' Dislocated Worker funds, the same 
methodology used in PY 2020. The Department will accept comments on 
this methodology.
    The three data factors required in WIOA sec. 132(b)(2)(B)(ii) for 
the PY 2021 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 2019-September 2020;
    (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 2019-September 2020; 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 2019-September 2020.
    In PY 2021, 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).
    Wagner-Peyser Act ES Allotments. The appropriated level for PY 2021 
for ES grants totals $670,052,000. After reducing the appropriated 
amount by $1,799,000 for set asides authorized by the Act, $668,253,000 
is available for ES grants. 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 2021 formula allotments on 
each state's share of calendar year 2020 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 2020. 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 $666,624,032 for

[[Page 22271]]

states, as well as $1,628,968 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 2021 funding for 
Workforce Information Grants allotments to states is $32,000,000. After 
reducing the total by $50,000 for set asides authorized by the Act, 
$31,950,000 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 $176,680 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 2020.
