Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
The Department of Labor (the Department or DOL), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that required data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. The Department notes that a Federal agency cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it is approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB control number, and the public is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Also, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a currently valid OMB control number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. A copy of the proposed ICR can be obtained by contacting the office listed below in the addresses section of this notice or by accessing: http://www.doleta.gov/OMBCN/OMBControlNumber.cfm.

Notice of Funding Opportunity and Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA) for H-1B Technical Skills Training Grants
Document Number: 2011-10306
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-05-03
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
Through this notice, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL or the Department), announces the availability of approximately $240 million in funds for an H-1B Technical Skills Training Grants program. This grant program is designed to provide education, training, and job placement assistance in the occupations and industries for which employers are using H-1B visas to hire foreign workers, and the related activities necessary to support such training. H-1B technical skills training grants are financed by a user fee paid by employers to bring foreign workers into the United States under the H-1B nonimmigrant visa program. This technical skills training program was authorized under Section 414(c) of the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998 (ACWIA), as amended (29 U.S.C. 2916a). Grant awards will be made only to the extent that funds are available. The Department will make awards to two types of training grants: those that provide On-the-Job Training (OJT) to all participants and those that use other training strategies. Of the awards granted through this Solicitation, at least $150 million will be awarded to grantees that provide OJT to all participants. Between the two types of grants awarded (OJT and other training strategies), DOL intends to fund at least $45 million to applicants proposing to provide training for occupations in the health care industry and at least $60 million to applicants that serve long-term unemployed individuals. While this Solicitation is open, DOL anticipates that additional funding will accrue for this grant program. Such additional funding may be made available for awards during the second round of funding, depending on the quality of applications received. The Department expects to award approximately 75-100 grants ranging from $1 million to $5 million with up to a 48-month period of performance. The Department will award grants to a partnership of private and public sector entities as defined in ACWIA. This partnership must include at least two entities from among the following groups: (1) Businesses or business-related nonprofit organizations, such as trade associations; (2) education and training providers, including community colleges and other community-based organizations; and (3) entities involved in administering the workforce investment system established under Title I of the WIA, and economic development agencies. The complete SGA is available in detail on ETA's Web site at http:/ /www.doleta.gov/grants/find_grants.cfm or on http://www.grants.gov. The Web sites provide application information, eligibility requirements, review and selection procedures and other program requirements governing this solicitation.

Document Number: 2011-8968
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-04-14
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
On January 19, 2011, the Department of Labor (Department) published a final rule, Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non- agricultural Employment H-2B Program (Wage Final Rule),\1\ promulgating a new prevailing wage methodology, as proposed in the Department's October 5, 2010 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). The prevailing wage methodology set forth in the Wage Final Rule applies to wages paid for work performed on or after January 1, 2012. Employers whose work commences in 2011 and continues into 2012 will have to pay a prevailing wage determined under the new prevailing wage methodology for the work performed in 2012. In order to ensure that employers accurately attest to their need to pay a different wage when the Wage Final Rule is effective, the Department has amended the ETA Form 9142, Application for Temporary Employment Certification, Appendix B.1, to reflect the employer's obligation to pay at least the highest of the most recent prevailing wage that the Department issues to the employer and is in effect at the time the work is performed.
