section 167 of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), 29 U.S.C.

291 2. Section 167(a) of WIA requires the Secretary to conduct a grants competition every two years for the purpose of carrying out the activities authorized under section 16 7. Although housing assistance is identified in WIA as one of the allowable activities under NFJP, Congressional appropriations language directs the Department to make available a specific amount of the funds appropriated for the NFJP for migrant and seasonal farmworkers housing assistance grants, and requires that no less than 70 percent of the specified amount must be used for permanent housing activities.

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 housing assistance grants, but we will not obligate any funds for PY 2011 grants unless and until they are appropriated.

The FY 2011 appropriation request for the housing assistance program is $5,700,00 0. All interested applicants should read the full announcement in its entirety.
