Federal Disclosures

The Stevens Amendment is a federal law found in H.R. 6157  that requires funding information to be included on all projects or programs using federal funds. It is intended to provide transparency for taxpayers and ensure federally funded research and work are properly credited.

This web page lists how the Workforce Investment Board of Tulare County (WIB) uses federal grant money to fund its work.
