SUBJECT: Reallotment and Reallocation Procedures
Introduction: This memorandum defines reallotment
and reallocation processes.
It contains the following sections:
Reallotment Among States
Reallocation Within the State
I. Reallotment Among States
The first reallotment of funds among states will
occur during PY 2001 based on state obligations in PY 2000. The Secretary
determines, during the first quarter of the program year, whether a state has
obligated its required level of at least 80 percent of the funds allotted under
WIA Sections 127 and 132 for programs serving youth, adults, and dislocated
workers for the prior year, as separately determined for each of the three
funding streams in accordance with Section 667.150 (b). The Secretary
reallots youth, adult, and dislocated worker funds among eligible states in
accordance with WIA Sections 127(c) and 132(c), respectively.
- Procedure to Allocate Realloted Funds Received from
the Secretary – From the balance remaining after state set-asides have been
reserved, the CT Department of Labor will reallot funds received to eligible
local areas. The reallotment will be based upon the relative share of the
prior year’s allocation to each local area(s) for the respective funding stream.
For purposes of this procedure, an eligible local area
means a local area that has obligated at least 80 percent of the local area
allocation for the program year prior to the program year for which the
determination is made by the Secretary of Labor.
Reallotment notifications will be made by the CT
Department of Labor within ninety (90) days of receipt of funds (Notice of
Obligation) from the USDOL Grant Officer.
II. Recapture and Reallotment Within State
During the first quarter of each program year, the
CTDOL will determine whether a local area is subject to recapture for each
The document the CTDOL will base the determination
to recapture will be the June 30th Financial Status Reports for the prior year.
The local area will have thirty (30) days following
notification of recapture to provide additional documentation for consideration,
such as amended reports. The CTDOL will verify for accuracy.
For the youth, adult and dislocated worker programs,
the amount to be recaptured from each local area for purposes of reallocation,
if any, will be based on the amount by which the prior year’s unobligated
balance of allocated funds exceeds 20 percent of that year’s allocation for the
program, less any amount reserved (up to 10 percent) for the cost of
administration. Unobligated balances will be determined based on
allocations adjusted for any allowable transfer between funding streams.
This amount, if any, will be separately determined for each funding stream.
To be eligible to receive youth, adult or dislocated
worker funds under this reallocation procedure, a local area must have obligated
at least 80 percent of the prior program year’s allocation, less any amount
reserved (up to 10%) for the cost of administration, for youth, adult, or
dislocated worker activities, as separately determined. A local area’s
eligibility to receive a reallocation must be separately determined for each
- The CT Department of Labor will reallocate youth,
adult and dislocated worker funds among local areas within the state based upon
the relative share of the prior year’s allocation to each local area(s) for the
respective funding stream.

awarded and which is accountable to the recipient (or higher tier subrecipient)
for the use of the funds provided.
Subgrant means an award of financial assistance in
the form of money, or property in lieu of money made under a grant by a grantee
to an eligible subrecipient. The term includes financial assistance when
