Background: We have
been provided with federal allotments for the PY 2002 program. These
allotments were issued as final allocations in AP 02-02. It is now time to
provide the 2002 contract package.
Policy: Please find as
Attachment 1, the WIA PY 2002 DOL contract package for new WIA funds. These
funds are to be kept separate from your PY 2001 WIA funds. The adult and
dislocated worker funds were given to us by USDOL under the categories of PY
2002 and FY 2003. That means for drawdown purposes, PY 2002 funds will be
available July 1, 2002, and the FY 2003 portion will become available
October 1, 2002. For your information, there is a provision to access youth
funds on the date made available by USDOL to the state, which would be
sometime after April 1, 2002. If you wish to access these funds earlier than
July 1, 2002, we will provide a grant package to address the early inclusion
of youth funds. This package would then need to be used as a modification to
that grant. Please contact Steve Litke at (860) 263-6599 only if you
wish to access youth funds early.
The PY 2002 contract package requires that all
questions be addressed. There has been no change to quarterly planning forms
introduced last year.
Please submit three originally signed copies of this
contract to Patricia Mayfield, Program Manager, Quality Program Review, 200
Folly Brook Boulevard, Wethersfield, CT 06109. We are requesting that these
contracts be submitted by May 17, 2002, so that processing of the grants can
be done in a timely manner.
If you have any questions on this issuance, please
contact Steve Litke at (860) 263-6599 or Susan Deschamplain at (860)
