Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program
Reserve Funding Request Form
INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING FORM ETA-9117
A separate funding template must be completed for each relevant fiscal year a State received program funds. For example, a State that received Trade Adjustment Assistance Program funding during the current fiscal year and two prior fiscal years, would be required to complete a template for each of the relevant fiscal years.
Trade Adjustment Assistance Program funds have a three-year life, the fiscal year in which they were allocated to the State, plus two subsequent fiscal years. For example, funds received during any given fiscal year are available for obligation and expenditure through September 30 of the succeeding two fiscal years, and all expenditures must be liquidated by December 31 of the third year. Grantees only have until the end of the life of the grant, September 30 of the third year, to fully expend the grant funds. Thereafter, they have 90 days to liquidate all accrued expenditures incurred prior to the end of the life of the grant. Grantees can not continue to obligate or expend funds after the end of the life of the grant unless they receive a written grant modification from the Grant officer that extends the life of the grant. Any remaining balances that are not liquidated by the end of the 3-year period will revert to the Treasury. States should not request additional funding if they have prior year funds available for obligation presuming the end of the life of grant has not occurred.
