WIA Primer - Grant Definitions

Title I Grant - Formula grants are distributed to the local areas to serve Adult, Youth, and Dislocated Workers.

The amount each area receives is determined by local data factors and described in the state plan.

Reserve Grants – National Emergency Grants (NEGs) are discretionary grants awarded by the Secretary of Labor to serve dislocated workers in significant dislocation events that arise from the effects of economic globalization, business fluctuations and unexpected events (ex BRAC).

De-Obligation - Reallocated funds taken away from the LWIAs by the state.

Modification – A modification is required should a local area wish to transfer formula funds between adult and dislocated worker funding streams.

Modifications should be made according to guidelines set forth from the State Plan.

Original Allocation - Allocation amount used to establish the grant for the program year

(July 1 – June 30).

Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) which provides updates made by the USDOL

EO officer – Equal Opportunity Officer

WIA Primer - Introduction to Grants

Basic Eligibility requirements for title I services:

18 years of age or older (adults)

14 – 21 years of age (youth)

Citizen or non citizen authorized to work in the US

Meet military selective service registration requirements (males only)

***There is no specific age criteria for dislocated workers***

The amount of funding that is distributed to the states is based on formulas for each funding stream as defined in section 127 for Youth Activities and section 132 for Adult and Dislocated Worker Employment and Training Activities of the Act with 5 percent reserved for statewide activities.

Of the amount appropriated for Dislocated Worker Employment and Training Activities USDOL reserves 20 percent for use for assistance to the outlying areas, dislocated worker technical assistance, dislocated worker projects, and national emergency grants (NEGs) and the states reserve up to 25 percent for Rapid Response activities.

slide6
WIA Primer - Individual Training Account (ITA)

An ITA is the primary way for participants (classified as adults) using Title I funds to obtain occupational training.

An ITA is essentially a voucher given to participants who need occupational skills training to become gainfully employed or reemployed.

The participant utilizes the voucher to reserve a slot in an eligible provider’s training class.

Georgia currently utilizes the service of the GCIC to provide a list of eligible providers.

slide7
WIA Primer – Local Obligations

Any changes such as transfers between the Adult and Dislocated Worker funding streams, funding levels or registrant information must be addressed as a modification to the Local plan.

A Local Board may transfer up to 20 percent of a program year allocation for adult employment and training activities, and up to 20 percent of a program year allocation for dislocated worker employment and training activities between the two programs unless a waiver is granted by USDOL for an increase.

Local Boards may not transfer funds to or from the youth program.
