WIA section 132(c) requires the Secretary to reallot excess unobligated dislocated worker funds based on financial reports submitted by states as of the end of the prior program year. The procedures the Secretary uses for recapture and reallotment of funds are described in WIA regulation at 20 CFR 667.150. Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 13-01, dated March 15, 2002, advised states that reallotment of funds under WIA will occur during PY 2002 based on state obligations made in PY 2001. There were no recapture and reallotment of WIA funds in PY 2001.
Excess unobligated state funds in the amount of $2,867,639 will be recaptured from PY 2002 formula allotted funds for the dislocated worker program from four states and distributed by formula to PY 2002 dislocated worker funds for eligible states. The methodology used for the recapture/reallotment and the distribution of the changes to PY 2002 formula allotments for dislocated worker activities are attached. We will not recapture any PY 2002 funds for Adult and Youth programs because in no case do unobligated funds exceed the statutory requirement of 20 percent of state unobligated funds.Start Printed Page 16104
WIA section 132(c) requires the Governor to prescribe equitable procedures for making funds available from the state and local areas in the event that the state is required to make funds available for reallotment.Start Signature
