Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 Congressional Rescissions for WIA Adults and Dislocated Workers; Program Year (PY) 2005 Workforce Investment Act (WIA Allotments and Additional Funds From WIA Section 173(e) for Adult/Dislocated Worker Activities for Eligible States; PY 2005 Wagner-Peyser Act Preliminary Allotments; Reemployment Services Allotments; PY 2005 Workforce Information Grants; and FY 2005 Work Opportunity Tax Credit and Welfare-to-Work Tax Credit Allotments
This Notice announces FY 2005 Congressional Rescissions for WIA Adults and Dislocated Worker programs, states' allotments for PY 2005 (July 1, 2005-June 30, 2006) for WIA Title I Youth, Adults and Dislocated Worker programs; additional PY 2005 funding from WIA Section 173(e) for eligible states; preliminary allotments for Employment Service (ES) activities under the Wagner-Peyser Act for PY 2005; Workforce Information Grants for PY 2005; and Work Opportunity Tax Credit and Welfare-to-Work Tax Credit allotments for FY 2005. The WIA allotments for states and the preliminary allotments for the Wagner-Peyser Act are based on formulas defined in their respective statutes. The WIA allotments for the outlying areas are based on a formula determined by the Secretary. As required by WIA section 182(d), on February 17, 2000, a Notice of the discretionary formula for allocating PY 2000 funds for the outlying areas (American Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Northern Marianas, Palau, and the Virgin Islands) was published in the Federal Register at 65 FR 8236 (February 17, 2000). The rationale for the formula and methodology was fully explained in the February 17, 2000, Federal Register notice. The formula for PY 2005 is the same as used for PY 2000 and is described in the section on Youth allotments. The data for the outlying areas was obtained from the Bureau of the Census and was based on 2000 census surveys for those areas conducted either by the Bureau or the outlying areas. Comments are invited upon the formula used to allot funds to the outlying areas.
