Preliminary Injunction (ECF No. 42), which is incorporated herein by reference, the Court orders
the Defendants to release federal funds made available to the State of Maine pursuant to the
Workforce Investment Opportunity Act (“WIOA”) for program year 2017 (“PY 2017”) to the
Plaintiff without mandating the 60% training requirement. Defendants shall make such funds
available in the ordinary course.
Any Subrecipent Award Agreement entered into pursuant to this Order shall be subject to
termination or modification based upon further Order of this Court or any appellate Court.

all necessary steps to making those funds available short of actual distribution will be undertaken
by Defendants expeditiously.
