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.

Launch of "Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership"
Apr 19, 2013

On April 17, 2013, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank announced the launch of the "Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership," an Obama Administration initiative that will help accelerate the resurgence of manufacturing and create jobs in cities across the country.

This effort rewards communities that demonstrate their plans to attract and expand manufacturing in their area, using targeted investments in workforce training, infrastructure, research, and other key assets.

Rather than creating targeted incentives for one company to locate in a particular area, the IMCP will challenge communities to coordinate their development efforts around workforce training, infrastructure, and innovation to create the best possible environment for investment. This initiative is an important part of the Obama Administration's commitment to revitalizing American manufacturing, strengthening our economy, and creating good-paying jobs."
