  TOPIC:       Reauthorization of the Adult Education and Family

  ITEM:        Notice announcing a series of public meetings and
               inviting comments from the public regarding the
               reauthorization of programs under the Adult
               Education and Family Literacy Act (the Act)
               (Title II of the Workforce Investment Act of
               1998). The Act authorizes federal support to
               states to provide adult education and literacy

               grants to states. Since FY 00, Congress also has
               appropriated additional funds for grants to states
               for integrated English literacy and civics
               education services to immigrants and other limited
               English proficient populations. For FY 02, $70
               million was appropriated for this purpose.
