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

The application for the ITA/Eligible Provider Demonstration Project is now available!
Sep 2, 1999
August 25, 1999 Notification of the availability of competitive demonstration funds for establishing ITA/Eligible Provider systems was published today in the Federal Register. This demonstration will assist states and localities in implementing some of the key reform elements of the Workforce Investment Act, by providing demonstration funding to develop the infrastructure necessary to have an effective ITA system for payment of training services, and to develop the procedures and partnerships necessary for the establishment of an Eligible Provider List that will truly provide customers with informed choice in the selection of training.

The full application with all necessary forms and material can be downloaded from the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) home page at www.doleta.gov, under Grant and Contract Applications. There are also two informational sessions being planned where potential applicants will receive background on previous demonstrations on Career Management Accounts, as well as what the DOL expectations are for selected grantees. These sessions will be held in Dallas on September 27 and 28th, and registration is required by September 15th. Details on conferences and registration form.
