To assist you in your planning, we are providing you with a table showing the estimated FY 2001 State allotments for the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA). These allotments will become available July 1, 2001.

In FY 2001, 1.72% of the total appropriation for AEFLA is reserved for incentive grants for States that exceed their agreed-upon performance levels for AEFLA, the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act, and Title I of the Workforce Investment Act. The attached table reflects this 1.72% set aside. The table also reflects the set asides for the competition for outlying areas described in section 211(e) of AEFLA, the hold harmless provisions of section 211 (f) for Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and Palau, and section 3 of PL 106-504.

The FY 2001 appropriation reserves an additional $70 million for grants to States for "integrated English literacy and civics education services to immigrants and other limited English proficient populations." These funds are allocated to States using the most recent data from the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) on immigrants admitted for legal permanent residence. We are working with the INS to obtain this data and hope to provide you with these allotments later in the spring.

If you have any questions concerning this allotment table, please contact your Area Coordinator. You may also find useful information on our web site at
