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

Grant Opportunity for Local Areas to Implement Individual Training Account (ITA) Approaches through the ITA Experiment
Oct 18, 2000
On Sept. 13, the U.S. Department of Labor, ETA, announced new grants totaling approximately $4.5 million. Approximately six grants will be awarded to local Workforce Investment Boards (Local Boards). Each grant award is estimated at $750,000. The purpose of this effort is to provide better information to State and local administrators as they determine the roles of counselors in the management of participant choices in ITAs; plan the allocation of staff and training resources to best meet their objectives; and strive for the continuous improvement of services under the Workforce Investment Act.
