SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 23, 2020, we published in the Federal Register an NIA for new awards for FY 2020 for ESF-RWP grants (85 FR 37636). In the NIA, we indicated that State Workforce Boards were eligible entities. Under section 18001(a)(3) of Division B of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), ESF-RWP funds are awarded to States. Since publication of the NIA, some States have indicated that the State Workforce Board in their State is not a State entity with the authority to apply for, receive, and administer Federal grant funds. As a result, we are correcting the NIA to indicate that the eligible entity for this competition must be either (1) a State Workforce Board that is a State agency or entity with the authority to apply for, administer, and receive ESF-RWP funds; or (2) a State agency or entity that is designated by a State Workforce Board to apply for, administer, and receive ESF-RWP funds.

All other information in the NIA, including the August 24, 2020, deadline for transmittal of applications and the requirement that only one application may be submitted per State, remains the same. Instructions for submitting an application can be found in the NIA.

Correction

In FR Doc. 2020-13480 appearing on page 37636 in the Federal Register of June 23, 2020, the following correction is made:

1. On page 37643, in the last paragraph of the right column, revise the language following the heading “1. Eligible Applicants:” to read as follows:

The eligible applicant is: (1) A State Workforce Board that is a State agency or entity with the authority to apply for, administer, and receive ESF-RWP funds; or (2) a State agency or entity that is designated by a State Workforce Board to apply for, administer, and receive ESF-RWP funds.
