There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

WIA Incentive Grant Summaries - PY 2004

Pennsylvania $853,980

The State plans to invest the funds in one initiative, the Youth in Transition Project, a targeted program that aims to improve the performance of state and local education, human services, and workforce systems as they interact with and support youth who are dropouts or aging out of foster care. It will be comprised of four components:

  • Improve the capacity to gather, examine, and use information to improve outcomes to disconnected youth;
  • Assess the policy and funding environment at the local and state level;
  • Increase the supply of quality educational options for disconnected youth; and
  • Build relationships between key partners and stakeholders.
The deliverables will include a complete set of data that describe the status and educational characteristics of dropouts or youth that are aging out of foster care, policy that targets the likelihood that youth will remain in school; and partnership models specific to geographic and demographic conditions.
