2. WIA generally requires DOL to conduct a general grants competition every two years to select NFJP grantees.

Under section 167(a) of WIA, the Secretary must award grants on a competitive basis to eligible entities for the purposes of carrying out the activities authorized under section 16 7. We are conducting this competition before the passage of the Department of Labor’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 appropriation in anticipation of the appropriation of funds for Program Year (PY) 2011 NFJP grants, but we will not obligate any funds for PY 2011 grants unless and until they are appropriated.
