Document Number: 2017-13750
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-06-30
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
This Notice announces allocations for Program Year (PY) 2017 for the WIOA Title I Section 167 National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) program as required under Section 182(d) of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014. The NFJP allocations are distributed to the state service areas by a formula that estimates, by State, the relative demand for NFJP services. The formula factors used to allocate funds for the NFJP were published in the Federal Register on May 19, 1999. The notice explained the purpose of the formula; i.e., distributing funds geographically by State service area on the basis of each area's relative share of farmworkers who are eligible for enrollment in the NFJP. The data used in the formula are comprised of a combination of data sets that were selected to yield the relative share distribution across States of eligible farmworkers. While the data factors used in the formula remain unchanged since their development in 1999, the data sets were last updated in 2005 with data from the 2000 Census, the 2003 National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS), and the 2002 Census of Agriculture.
