Current Narrative:

The state follows section 133(b)(2)(A)(i) and TEGL 16-18 to formula allocate funding for Dislocated Worker activities. The following data is used in computing these allotments:

  • Insured Unemployment Data for the preceding Calendar Year (30% weight);
  • Unemployed Concentration Data for the preceding Program Year (30% weight);
  • Plant Closing and Mass Layoff Data for the preceding Calendar Year (15% weight);
  • Declining Industries Data for the preceding Calendar Year (10% weight);
  • Farmer/Rancher Economic Hardship Data for the preceding Calendar Year (2% weight);
  • Long-term Unemployment Data for the preceding Calendar Year (13% weight).

The Governor’s Workforce Cabinet will examine how this weighting impacts local distribution and if adjustments are needed. The state applies the 90% hold harmless provision contained in WIOA, section 132(b)(2)(B)(iii).
