Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 23-04 advised states that the reallotment of funds under WIA will occur during PY 2005 based on state obligations made in PY 2004. WIA Adult and Youth PY 2005 funds are not subject to recapture because in no case do PY 2004 unobligated funds exceed the statutory requirement of 20 percent of state allotted funds. No WIA funds were recaptured and reallotted in PY 2004.
Excess unobligated state funds in the amount of $239,605 will be recaptured from PY 2005 formula allotted funds for the Dislocated Worker program for two states and distributed by formula as PY 2005 Dislocated Worker funds for eligible states. The methodology used for the calculation of the recapture/reallotment amounts and distribution of changes to PY 2005 formula allotments for Dislocated Worker activities are attached.
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 a state is required to make funds available for reallotment.Start Signature
