American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

Monthly Participant Reports, as of June 2011

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

On a monthly basis, states reported 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. It was not possible for states and local service providers to isolate "Recovery Act" participants from formula fund participants as funds were spent concurrently and the characteristics and eligibility requirements were equivalent for WIA Adult, WIA Dislocated Worker, and Wagner-Peyser Employment Service program participants served with Recovery Act and/or WIA formula funds.
