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

Oregon $714,422

The state plans to use the incentive funds to develop Pathways to Advancement within the workforce regions. Pathways initiatives will be pursued in three broad areas:

  • Developing and testing replicable "bridge models" for ABE, GED, ESL and Developmental Education;
  • Aligning Pathways to Advancement linkages between workforce partners and community colleges; and
  • Strengthening and/or developing secondary-postsecondary professional technical Pathways to Advancement linkages.
The Pathways model offers a modularized outcome-based curriculum, credentials, roadmaps (programs of study), pre-college "bridge" strategies, wrap-around services, internships/cooperative work experiences/job shadowing, and linkages to employer/labor market needs.
