assistance in order to increase economic opportunities for migrant and seasonal farmworkers (MSFW) and their dependents.

The Department is exercising its option under WIA to continue grant awards to NFJP grantees that have performed successfully, and hold a grant competition for service delivery areas in which the current grantee has not performed adequately.

Therefore, this grant competition is only seeking applications to operate NFJP in the following service areas:
California (central California service area covering Merced, Madera and Stanislaus Counties), Hawaii, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Puerto Rico.

A total of approximately $ 9. 6 million is expected to be available for grants in these service areas.

However, the final amount available depends upon the amount of funds appropriated for NFJP in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Department of Labor Appropriations Act.
