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

    Directive OWB 97-21 Directive:
      OWB 97-21


      Dual Enrollment


      To provide additional clarification on joint or dual enrollment of SCSEP enrollees in JTPA.


      All Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) Sponsors


      Erich W. ("RIC") Larisch Chief Division of Older Worker Programs

    Date: September 5, 1997

    Expiration Date:  Not Given


      Reference: Older Worker Bulletins: 97-8, "Eligibility Certification for Enrollees in Joint SCSEP-Job Training Partnership Act Programs"; 94-10, "Joint Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) Eligibility"; and 94-1, "Technical Amendment to Title V of the Older Americans Act"

      Background: Although there have been two issuances to the JTPA network regarding joint enrollment in SCSEP and JTPA, many Service Delivery Areas and JTPA Section 204(d) operators remain reluctant to accept eligibility determinations conducted by SCSEP program operators. This situation works to the detriment of seniors who are seeking and in need of employment and training.

      Recently, Region III issued a Regional Field Memorandum designed to clarify the policy on dual enrollment. This regional issuance reiterates the Department of Labor's policy and briefly discusses some of the concerns that JTPA operators have expressed. A copy of this memorandum is attached for your information.

      Action: SCSEP sponsors should review the attachment and are encouraged to share copies with appropriate staff and other agencies. We hope this information will foster cooperation between the JTPA and SCSEP programs.


      Questions may be directed to your Federal Representative, (202) 219-5904.

    Type of Document:



      Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration

    Regional Field Memorandum, OTES NO. 12-97, "Joint Programs between JTPA Title II A, Title II Older Individuals and Title V of the Older Americans Act (OAA)"
