WAC 192-270-055

Funding—Waiting lists.

(1) This section does not apply to dislocated workers eligible under RCW 50.22.155 (2)(a)(i). Approval of training for these individuals is not contingent upon the availability of funding.
(2) For all other claimants eligible for training benefits under RCW 50.22.155, payment is contingent upon the availability of funding. Training will not be approved under RCW 50.22.155 unless funds are available to support your training plan.
(3) The amount of funds obligated will be the amount necessary to complete your training plan or the maximum amount authorized by RCW 50.22.155 (2)(g)(i), whichever is less.
(4) If you have been denied training benefits due to lack of funds, the department will consider whether you are eligible for commissioner approved training under WAC 192-200-020.
(5) Funds will be obligated to otherwise eligible workers on a first-come, first-served basis, determined by the date the completed training application is received by the department.
(6) Once all available funds have been obligated, individuals who have been denied training benefits due solely to the lack of funds will be placed on a waiting list. Priority on the waiting list will be determined by the date the claimant's completed training application was received by the department. As additional funds become available, this date will be used when obligating funds to claimants on the waiting list. In the event two or more claimants on the waiting list have the same date, priority will be given to that person who is closest to exhausting regular unemployment benefits.
(7) An individual's name may be removed from the waiting list, upon written notice, when the department determines it is appropriate. Examples include, but are not limited to:
(a) Written correspondence to the claimant from the department is returned by the U.S. postal service for lack of a current address, and the claimant has not filed a change of address with the department;
(b) The claimant fails to respond to written correspondence from the department by the date indicated in the correspondence;
(c) The claimant is not enrolled in or making satisfactory progress in full-time training; or
(d) Except as provided in RCW 50.22.155 (2)(g)(iv), implementation of the approved training program would result in benefits being paid more than two years beyond the end of the claimant's benefit year.
