TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT GUIDANCE LETTER NO. 25-07
The requirement to submit a two-year strategic plan is contingent upon your organization being “Designated” as a Section 166 grantee for PY 2008-2009. Grantees that are not designated as a Section 166 grantee for PY 2008-2009 will not receive Section 166 funds and therefore, there is no need for them to submit a two-year plan. Grant designations will be made in accordance with the procedures described in the Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA) process which was published in the Federal Register on January 4, 2008 (73 Federal Re. 883).
As indicated in No. 4 below, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) expects the initial submission of the two-year plan to thoroughly address the guiding questions in Attachment B. Plans that fail to meet these standards will not be approved. Therefore, grantees are encouraged to begin working on their two-year strategic plan as soon as they receive this TEGL.
ALL SECTION 166 INDIAN AND NATIVE AMERICAN GRANTEES
