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

Tech-Prep Demonstration Competitive Grants
Jul 19, 2001
On July 9, 2001, the Office of Vocational and Adult Education within the Department of Education announced the availability of $5 million in FY 2001 funds for competitive grants to local Tech-Prep consortia under the Tech-Prep Demonstration Program.

Authorized by section 207 of the 1998 Carl D. Perkins Act, the funds were appropriated to enable eligible consortia to carry out tech-prep education projects that involve the co-location of a secondary school on the site of a community college, a business as a member of the consortium, and the voluntary participation of secondary school students. All TPDP projects must fully implement the core requirements of Tech-Prep Education under Title II of the Perkins Act.

OVAE has estimated that 10 grants will be awarded, ranging from $400,000 to $600,000 for a 36-month project period, with an average size of $500,000. The deadline for applications is September 17, 2001.
