National Dislocated Worker Grant – Frequently Asked Questions
- If the number of participants served has not been entered accurately in CalJOBSSM, how do we proceed?
In an effort to maintain data integrity, subrecipients must electronically submit the form “Request for Correction to Previously Submitted Data” to the Workforce Services Branch’s Program Reporting and Analysis Unit (PRAU) before any change is done to locked data. Upon receipt of the completed form, PRAU staff will review the request and analyze the overall impact of the proposed change, especially with respect to current performance outcomes. Each request will be considered on a case-by-case basis depending on the detailed reasons and the supporting documentation submitted. The EDD will contact the local Management Information Systems (MIS) administrator (or designated staff) with the request status. For more information, review WSD10-14 Request Form to Change Previously Submitted Data and WSD13-11 CalJOBS Participant Reporting.
The attachment II, page 4 of the Training Guidance Letter (TEGL) 2-15 states, “In general, an entity that receives a grant to carry out Dislocated Worker Grant program or project may not use more than 10 percent of the amount of the grant to pay administrative costs associated with the project.”
The Code of Federal Regulations, 20CFR633.700 (c), states, “An OJT contract must be limited to the period of time required for a participant to become proficient in the occupation for which the training is being provided. In determining the appropriate length of the contract, consideration should be given to the skill requirements of the occupation, the academic and occupational skill level of the participant, prior work experience and the participants individual employment plan.” The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has determined that the period of reimbursement for OJT is limited to six months to maximize opportunity for the many dislocated workers. Refer to page 7 of the TEGL 04-10.
The maximum duration for disaster relief employment was increased from 6 months under the Workforce Investment Act to 12 months, and from 1,040 hours to 2,080 under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act per the TEGL 02-15, Attachment II, Page 15.
