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.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

WIA Incentive Grant Summaries - PY 2004

Iowa $665,157

The State plans to use incentive funds for the following initiatives:

  • The Working Family: The Department of Education will utilize input from community colleges’ adult literacy and family literacy staff to address the needs of “the working family.” Activities will focus on assisting adults in building work skills while providing career awareness to children; and
  • Literacy Opportunities in One-Stop Centers: This activity will be designed to achieve direct literacy gains for job seekers who need this skill, and combine that achievement with the development of technology skills, basic education, and soft skills. Iowa Workforce Development will develop and direct this activity.
