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

ETA Announces Funding Opportunity under the Research Papers Program
Mar 5, 2013
ETA Announces Funding Opportunity under the Research Papers Program The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has announced the availability of funds for the agency’s Research Papers Program. This initiative will provide approximately $80,000 to fund approximately 10 projects of Doctoral students interested in writing scholarly, policy-relevant research papers on topics of interest to the public workforce investment system.

As the ETA Research Papers Program moves into its third year, the program continues with two objectives:

(1) to provide relevant and evidence-based information to stimulate discussion and action among individuals working on the front-line of service delivery in the public workforce investment system and partner organizations, and

(2) to simultaneously support innovative and scholarly investigation in the field of employment and training. Additionally, the ETA 2012 Research Papers Program will help support Doctoral program students while they complete their dissertations and studies in the employment and training field.

Submitted proposals will outline scholarly papers to be written on innovative topics involving the public workforce investment system. Areas of interest to ETA fall under the five broad areas in the ETA Five-Year Strategic Research Plan for 2012-2017 soon to be released on ETA’s research web site at: http://www.doleta.gov/reports/fiveyear_researchplan.cfm. .

The five priority areas are:

  • Understanding Changing Labor Markets
  • Identifying Effective Strategies
  • Improving Workforce System Infrastructure
  • Addressing the Need of Special Populations
  • Building Research Infrastructure and Support
