The remainder of this TEGL informs and provides procedural guidance to the State Workforce Agency (SWA), participating agencies, and Federal and State partners on the retroactive legislative reauthorization of all Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) target groups, the Empowerment Zones that expired on December 31, 2014, and the introduction of a new target group and new WOTC ETA Forms. This TEGL also provides procedural guidance to SWAs for processing and issuing determinations for all certification requests.
