Welfare-to-Work Planning Guidance and Instructions for Annual State Plans for Fiscal Year 1999

  1. Purpose. To notify States that there are no additional Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 Welfare-to-Work (WtW) funds for FY 99 formula reallocation.

  2. Authorities and References. Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) No. 3-98, WtW Planning Guidance and Instructions for Annual State Plans and Planning Allocations for FY 99, dated July 30, 1998.

  3. Background. TEGL 3-98 provided States with Planning Guidance and Instructions for Annual State Plans. Section 9 (Reallocation of FY 98 Funds) specified that additional FY 98 funds may be available for a second FY 99 formula allocation and provided States with guidance on how to apply for additional FY 98 funds. This TEGL change eliminates that section.

  4. Elimination of Additional FY 99 Funds Available Through Reallocation. Since no additional FY 98 funds are available, States are not to include a request for these funds with their FY 99 WtW Annual State Plans.

  5. Action. States should provide this guidance to appropriate staff for the preparation and submission of the FY 99 WtW Annual State Plans.

  6. Inquiries. Inquiries on this TEGL should be directed to Stephanie Curtis on (202) 219-0024, ext. 189.
