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

Self-Employment Assistance Program Grants: ETA Extends Application Deadline to August 14
Apr 11, 2013
The Employment and Training Administration this week announced the extension of the application deadline for Self-Employment Assistance Program Grants.

Unemployment Insurance Program Letter 20-12 -- The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112-96) – Provisions on Self-Employment Assistance Program – set a submission date of June 30. The agency, however, has extended that deadline to August 14 to provide more time for states to submit applications.

Change 1 to UIPL 20-12 provides additional information on the extension.
