Indian and Native American Employment and Training Programs; Solicitation for Grant Applications and Announcement of Competition Waivers for Program Years 2006 and 2007
Document Number: 06-1251
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-02-13
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA), announces the availability of competitive grant funds to provide employment and training services to Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians under section 166 of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) for Program Years (PY) 2006, and 2007 (July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2008). Competition for section 166 grants is conducted every two years, except that the Secretary may waive the requirement for such competition for current grantees that have performed satisfactorily. Through this Notice, the Department announces that the Secretary has waived competition for this solicitation for grantees that have performed satisfactorily under their current grant. (See Attachment A for a list of grantees receiving waivers.) To apply for an award of funds for PY 2006 and 2007 for their current service area, current grantees receiving a waiver of competition only need to submit a cover letter, signed by an authorized signatory, and a Standard Form (SF) 424 Application for Federal Assistance (Version 02), which will serve as the grantee's ``Notice of Intent'' (NOI) to continue providing WIA section 166 services. Submittals on http://www.grants.gov, with authorized electronic signatures, will also be accepted in place of the hard copy cover letter and SF 424. The Secretary has also waived competition for this solicitation for those grantees operating a WIA section 166 training and employment program as part of a Pub. L. 102-477 Demonstration Project, which allows federally-recognized tribes, or entities serving federally- recognized tribes, to consolidate formula-funded employment, training, and related dollars under a single service plan administered by the Department of the Interior. (See Attachment B for a list of Pub. L. 102-477 grantees.) Grantees operating a WIA section 166 grant as part of a Public Law 102-477 Demonstration Project will need to submit a cover letter, signed by an authorized signatory, and a Standard Form (SF) 424 Application for Federal Assistance (Version 02), which will serve as the grantee's ``Notice of Intent'' (NOI) to continue providing WIA section 166 services to the address provided in section IV (3) of this notice. Submittals on http://www.grants.gov, with authorized electronic signatures, will also be accepted in place of the hard copy cover letter and SF 424. Competition for funding under this solicitation is limited to the geographic areas listed in Attachment C of this SGA. Any eligible entity, including new applicants and current grant recipients serving other geographic areas, may apply for funding to serve these areas. Current grantees serving these geographic areas are subject to competition and must submit a grant application as specified in Part IV (2) in order to compete for their existing service area. Important: Organizations seeking WIA section 166 funding for this period must comply with the provisions of this SGA. Late applications from current grantees or new applicants will not be considered for those geographic service areas that are in competition (as listed in Attachment C). A list of current grantees and the geographic areas they serve can be found at: http://www.doleta.gov/dinap/cfml/CensusData.cfm. Addresses: Applications may be submitted electronically on http:// www.grants.gov or in hard-copy via mail or hand delivery. Mailed applications must be sent to: U.S. Department of Labor, ETA, Room N- 4617, 200 Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20210, Attention: James Stockton. Applicants are advised that mail delivery in the Washington, DC area may be delayed due to mail decontamination procedures. Hand delivered proposals will be received at the above address.

Part IV provides information on the application and submission process. Part V describes the criteria against which applications will be reviewed and evaluated, and explains the proposal review process. Part VI provides award administration information. Part VII contains DOL agency contact information. Part VIII lists additional resources of interest to applicants. Attachment A lists grantees receiving waivers. As indicated, this list also includes grantees which will receive conditional designation with conditions to be specified by the Grant Officer and reflected in the grant award. Attachment B lists Public Law 102-477 grantees receiving waivers. Attachment C lists grantees that did not receive a waiver and areas/counties open for competition and associated funding amounts.
Labor Certification for the Permanent Employment of Aliens in the United States; Reducing the Incentives and Opportunities for Fraud and Abuse and Enhancing Program Integrity
Document Number: 06-1248
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-02-13
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the Department of Labor (Department or DOL) is publishing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM or proposed rule) with request for comments to enhance program integrity and reduce the incentives and opportunities for fraud and abuse related to the permanent employment of aliens in the United States. First, DOL is proposing to eliminate the current practice of allowing the substitution of alien beneficiaries on permanent labor certification applications and resulting certifications. Second, DOL is proposing a 45-day period for employers to file approved permanent labor certifications in support of a petition with the Department of Homeland Security, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (DHS). Third, the proposed rule expressly prohibits the sale, barter, or purchase of permanent labor applications and certifications, as well as other related payments. Finally, the proposed rule includes provisions highlighting existing law pertaining to submission of fraudulent or false information, clarifying current DOL procedures for responding to possible fraud, and adding procedures for debarment from the permanent labor certification program. Under this proposed regulation, these provisions to enhance program integrity and reduce fraud and abuse would apply to permanent labor certification applications and approved certifications filed under both the regulation effective March 28, 2005, and any prior regulation implementing the permanent labor certification program. This proposed rule also proposes clarifying modifications of applications filed after March 28, 2005, under the new streamlined permanent labor certification process. The Department solicits comments on each provision contained in this NPRM.
