On February 16, 2022, the Adjustable Block Program (ABP) issued an announcement stating that Demographic and Geographic data will now be collected via the Part II application.
Per the announcement, “The Part II application will ask Approved Vendors to provide the aggregate hours worked by employees and/or subcontractors in construction and installation of the project by 1) race, 2) ethnicity, 3) residential ZIP code of the worker, and 4) status as a graduate of a qualifying job training program.”
As a result, Part II submission of applications may be delayed as we work with our partners to collect this necessary information.
Projects exempt from needing to report this information include projects that were approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission prior to September 15, 2021 (the enactment of Public Act 102-0662), and/or projects for which construction was completed on or before September 15, 2021.
Lastly, SRECTrade is temporarily closing its website to all ABP submissions so that we can make the necessary changes to our application and allow for this data to be collected upfront.Tweet
