Subject: Vocational-Technical Education State Allotments -- Fiscal Year 2000 Appropriations

I am pleased to provide you with the attached table showing the final FY 2000 State allotments for the Vocational and Technical Education Basic Grants Program authorized by Title I of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act (Perkins III).

This table modifies the allotment table we provided you in our February 3, 2000 program memorandum to reflect recent amendments made by Congress to the incentive grant program authorized by section 503 of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The Department was not able to negotiate performance levels in FY 1999 for Perkins III with any State because States did not have sufficient baseline data for all of the indicators of performance specified in section 113 of Perkins III. For this reason, Congress amended section 503 of WIA to exclude Perkins III from the incentive grant program in FY 2000. States are now eligible to receive an incentive grant from FY 2000 funds if they exceed their agreed–upon FY 1999 performance levels for WIA Title I and the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act. At the same time, Congress also deleted the requirement that 0.54% of the FY 2000 appropriation for Perkins III State grants be reserved for the incentive grant program. These amendments were made by section 2403 of the FY 2001 Military Construction Appropriations Act (P.L. 106–246), which was signed into law on July 13, 2000.

The amendments apply to FY 2000 only. In subsequent years, States must exceed their agreed-upon performance levels for all three programs to be eligible for incentive grants, and 0.54% of the Perkins III State grant appropriation will be set aside for making incentive grants.

The attached allotment table includes the $5,700,510 that we had previously reserved for incentive grants. The supplemental grant award issued to you during the first week of October will reflect the new total amounts. Please note that, due to a variety of factors used in the formula, including the small State minimum and the hold harmless, not all States will receive an increase in their State allotment as a result of the elimination of the incentive grant setaside in FY 2000.

If you have any questions about this table, please feel free to contact your State liaison in the Division of Vocational-Technical Education.
