If earmarks of existing allocations are to be utilized for CCMEP, how much flexibility will there be between the allocations, if any? Additionally, will there be the opportunity to obtain additional funds for CCMEP if needed? If services are disrupted for a few weeks, will WIOA Youth grantees be able to extend the period of performance to complete all planned grant activities?

Since CCMEP funds are made up of TANF and WIOA funds, are the allowable costs for CCMEP the same as those for regular TANF and WIOA allocations? If not, where can we find the allowable costs for CCMEP? Since there are four allocations combined for the CCMEP effort, how are we to track expenses against each of the allocations? In other words, how are expenses to be allocated to each allocation? Some agencies pay their WIOA staff and overhead costs from the Public Assistance Fund (Income Maintenance or Social Services). Will CCMEP Random Moment Sample (RMS) codes map the same way the current WIOA codes map within the Public Assistance fund?

When using WIOA funds, 85 percent of all Individual Training Accounts (ITAs) issued by a local workforce area must relate to a state in-demand occupation. Would the use of TANF funds for an ITA have the same restriction? Who will receive CCMEP TANF and CCMEP WIOA Youth allocations? Will WIOA Youth funding be received on time this year? WIOA requires that at least 75% of funds spent on youth services be used to serve out-of-school youth. Does this requirement also apply to TANF funds?
