ETA Publishes "Thirty-Day" Notice for the "Follow-up Survey Information for Green Jobs and Health, American Recovery Reinvestment Act Grants"; Comments Due to OMB by December 21
Nov 21, 2012
The Employment and Training Administration has published the "thirty-day" notice regarding the "Follow-Up Survey Information for Green Jobs and Health, American Recovery Reinvestment Act Grants."

In July, 2011, the Office of Management (OMB) approved a baseline data collection ICR for the American Recovery Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Green Jobs and Health Care Grants Impact Evaluation (OMB 1205-0486), and in March, 2012, the OMB approved a subsequent ICR for a process study including site visits and focus groups (OMB 1205-0487).

This new ICR is limited to follow-up interviews planned for all study participants 18 months and 36 months after the baseline collection. The overall aim of this evaluation is to determine the extent to which enrollees achieve increases in employment, earnings, and career advancement because of their participation in the training provided by Pathways Out of Poverty and Healthcare Sector and other High Growth and Emerging Industry grantees and to identify promising best practices and strategies for replication.
