Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Indian and Native American Program - Employment and Training Grants: The Employment and Training Administration, U.S. Department of Labor announces the availability of approximately $62 million for Indian and Native American (INA) Program Grants to fund approximately 176 total grants. We anticipate approximately $49,000,000 of the $62,000,000 will be for Comprehensive Service Program (adult) activities, and the remaining $13,000,000 will be for Supplemental Youth Services that will be awarded to those grant recipients that serve Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian youth living on or near Indian reservations and in Oklahoma, Alaska, and Hawaii. The funds are authorized by Section 166 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and amounts will be based on a funding formula provided in the WIOA regulations at 20 CFR 684.270 and 684.440. The purpose of this program is to “support employment and training activities for Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian individuals in order to: (A) develop more fully the academic, occupational, and literacy skills of such individuals; (B) make such individuals more competitive in the workforce and equip them with the entrepreneurial skills necessary for successful self-employment; and (C) promote the economic and social development of Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities in accordance with the goals and values of such communities.” INA grant competitions are held every four years. Grantees that receive an award as a result of this competition will receive one grant award annually for four consecutive years, subject to appropriated funding, starting in PY 2018. Each annual grant award will have a 36-month period of performance. Grantees will receive a new grant with a new grant number in each of those four years contingent on the availability of funds and satisfactory progress towards achieving the goals and objectives of the grant. The anticipated start date for awardees that receive both youth and adult funding is April 1, 2018, while the anticipated start date for awardees that receive only adult funding is July 1, 2018. The period of performance detailed above includes all necessary implementation and start-up activities.

Additional Information on Eligibility
To be eligible to apply for a WIOA Sec. 166 grant, an entity must have legal status as a government or as an agency of a government, private non-profit corporation, or a consortium whose members all qualify as one of these entities. Per 20 CFR 684.200(f), these entities include: • Federally recognized Indian tribes; • Tribal organizations, as defined in 25 U.S.C. 450b; • Alaska Native-controlled organizations; • Native Hawaiian-controlled organizations; • Indian-controlled organizations serving INAs; • A consortium of eligible entities which meets the legal requirements for a consortium as described at 20 CFR 684.200(e); • State-recognized tribal organizations as defined in 20 CFR 684.200(g). In addition and in accordance with 20 CFR 684.200(b): “A new entity (which is not an incumbent grantee) must have a population within the designated geographic service area, which would receive at least $100,000 under the funding formula found at § 684.270(b), including any amounts received for supplemental youth services under the funding formula at § 684.440(a).” Notwithstanding this requirement, applications that do not meet the funding threshold may still be considered if the Grant Officer offers -- and the applicant accepts -- additional geographic areas to its application. And in accordance with 20 CFR 684.200(c) and (d): “Incumbent grantees which do not meet this dollar threshold and were receiving INA funding of less than $100,000 as of October 18, 2016, will be grandfathered into the program and are eligible to be awarded less than $100,000, so long as the grantees have continuously received less than $100,000 since October 18, 2016. The Department will make an exception to the $100,000 minimum for applicants that apply for WIOA funding through Public Law 102–477 as amended by Public Law 115-93, the Indian, Employment, Training, and Related Services demonstration program, if all resources to be consolidated under the Public Law 102– 477 plan total at least $100,000, with at least $20,000 derived from Sec. 166 funds. However, incumbent Public Law 102–477 grantees that were receiving INA funding of less than $20,000 as of October 18, 2016, will be grandfathered into the program and are eligible to be awarded less than $20,000, so long as the grantees have continuously received less than $20,000 since October 18, 2016.”
