American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

Monthly Participant Reports, as of December 2009

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided funding for the workforce investment system to offer training and employment services to workers who are facing unprecedented challenges to retool their skills and establish themselves in viable career pathways.

Due to the nature of the WIA Adult and Dislocated Worker and Wagner-Peyser Employment Service formula-funded programs, the Department of Labor has not yet isolated the number of participants in each of these programs that are attributable to Recovery Act funds.

On a monthly basis, states report on the number of participants served under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs, National Emergency Grants (NEGs), and the Wagner-Peyser Employment Service program.
