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.

WIA Incentive Grant Summaries - PY 2004

Wisconsin $713,988

Wisconsin continues to experience changes in its manufacturing economy. While it continues to experience dislocations in the industry, there are new manufacturing jobs that are being created. Wisconsin needs its manufacturers to move to becoming high performance workplaces. In order to address these changes, Wisconsin proposes:

  • Occupation-Related Basic Academic and Employability Skills/Competencies: Wisconsin will fund projects that offer skills instruction, including ABE and English as a Second Language, and to support the development of employability skills; and
  • Occupational/Technical Skills/Competencies: These skills will be comprised of competencies identified in the Manufacturing Skills Standards and DOL Competency system. Emphasis will be placed on projects involving industry- led skills standards and certification development, as well as incorporating academic, employability, and occupational and technical knowledge in specific skill areas.
The activities will demonstrate collaborative partnerships in planning and service delivery led by workforce development boards and technical college districts. They will also build a stronger skilled workforce that can adapt and work in a skill-based workforce environment, and help the State transition from traditional manufacturing to high-level skilled, advanced manufacturing environments.
