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

To strengthen urban communities heavily impacted by returning non-violent ex-offenders, the Reentry Employment Opportunities (REO) Program takes an employment-centered approach that incorporates housing, mentoring, and other comprehensive services.

At the Federal level, a team of Federal and national partners is facilitated by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration to guide this collaborative process and insure ex-offenders have access to those services necessary for them to successfully integrate into their communities through employment.

Below is a list of agencies and organizations involved in this initiative:

U.S. Department of Justice

Corporation for National and Community Service

U.S. Department of Labor

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
