AGENCY:

Employment and Training Administration (ETA, Labor).

ACTION:

Notice: Amendment to SGA/DFA-PY-08-20.

SUMMARY:

The Employment and Training Administration published a document in the Federal Register on June 24, 2009, announcing the availability of funds and solicitation for grant applications (SGA) for State Energy Sector Partnership (SESP) and Training Grants to be awarded through a competitive process. This notice is the first amendment to the SGA and clarifies items related to: (1) Updated Attachment 1—Counties Impacted by Automotive-Related Restructuring; (2) the number of parts to the technical proposal (Section IV: Application and Submission Information, Part 2 Technical Proposal); (3) the number of sub criteria to the Strategy and Project Work Plan criteria in Section V.A.3); (4) participants eligible to receive training (Section III.D.1); and, (5) Section B on Green Industries and Occupations (Supplementary Information). The document is hereby amended.

1. Attachment I—Counties Impacted by Automotive Restructuring. This notice replaces “Attachment I” as referenced on p. 30127-30128, which is a list of 281 counties impacted by automotive-related restructuring from the Center for Automotive Research. In addition to the 281 counties, an additional 31 counties have been included on the list due to an inadvertent omission on the original list. This is the complete and final list and there will be no further changes to this list. Accordingly, the “old” Attachment I on p. 30127-30128 is being replaced by the “new” Attachment I below:Start Printed Page 36529
