State Statutory Formula Funding
A detailed look at how certain programs in ETA's budget are divided by statutory formula among States.
See State Funding
Quarterly State WIOA Spending Summaries
The Department posts expenditure data on each of the three Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act block grants (Adult, Youth, and Dislocated Worker) for each quarter beginning in Program Year (PY) 2015. Data for Workforce Investment Act programs from the end of PY 2000 through the end of PY 2014 is available in the WIA Archive below.
WIOA Spending Summaries reflect cumulative accrued expenditure of total funds available reported during a particular program year. States are authorized three years to obligate and expend WIOA funds; therefore, in WIOA Spending Summaries, total funds available in a program year include unexpended carry-in plus new availability.
ETA requires grantees to report accrued expenditures. Accrued expenditures, as defined in 2 CFR 200.34, means charges incurred by the grantee during a given period requiring the provision of funds for: (1) goods and other tangible property received; (2) services performed by employees, contractors, sub-grantees, subcontractors, and other payees; and (3) other amounts becoming owed under programs for which no current services or performance is required, such as annuities, insurance claims, and other benefits.
In general, total accrued expenditures are costs incurred for goods and services received regardless of whether the payment has been made (TEGL No. 2-16).
Annual State WIOA Obligation Summaries
WIOA Obligation Summaries reflect cumulative obligations of total funds available reported during a particular program year. States are authorized three years to obligate and expend WIOA funds; therefore, in WIOA Obligation Summaries, total funds available in a program year include unobligated carry-in plus new availability.
Obligations, as defined in 2 CFR 200.71, means the amount of orders placed, contracts, and subgrants awarded, goods and services received, and similar transactions during a given period that will require payment by the grantee during the same or a future period. In sum, obligation is a term that references actions where a legal commitment to pay exists (TEGL 2-16). Total obligations represent the sum of expenditures and unliquidated obligations.
WIOA Spending and Obligation Rate Visualizations
To help visualize state utilization of WIOA funds, the Department is preparing a comparison of obligation and expenditure rates for funding available to each state during the program year. Comparisons are made for all WIOA funding combined, State level funding, the Governor's Reserve, and Local level funding.
States are authorized three years to obligate and expend WIOA funds; therefore, total funds available in a program year include carry-in plus new availability. Some funds may be obligated at the end of the prior program year, but not expended; so the carry-in amount available for obligation is not always the same as the amount available for expenditure (and often is less). As a result, states may legitimately wind up with a percent obligated during a program year that is less than the percent expended, although usually the percent obligated is higher than the percent expended.
