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

WIRED Resource Team WIRED Logo - Talent Driving Prosperity

The WIRED Resource Team consists of a collaborative group of ETA managers, other Federal Agency Partners; economic development specialists; workforce development specialists and other technical assistance providers.

This team is actively involved in ensuring that the grantees meet or exceed their goals and have the necessary tools and subject matter expertise to transform their economies.

WIRED Grantees currently receive technical assistance from partners and subject matter experts in a broad array of topics including but not limited to strategic planning, asset mapping and entrepreneurship. Technical Assistance providers complement the existing WIRED regional teams by providing access to a knowledge base that may reside outside the region.

Technical Assistance providers may work with regional teams to problem solve and to support sound talent development strategies for regional growth through coaching and strategic direction.

Technical Assistance providers are often used to help plan, implement or benchmark the goals of a program or to provide expertise, best practices, and analysis relating to a program. Key elements of technical assistance may include process improvement, sharing models, performing gap analyses, facilitating key discussions among stakeholders, and other forms of support and assistance.
