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.

  2. Economic Growth and Competitiveness - Accelerate the capacity to create new, high skill, high wage jobs through demand-driven services to targeted industry clusters, and to strengthen the entrepreneurial and innovation culture across the entire region.
  3. Education and Workforce Investment - Leverage all of the region's educational and training resources to transform and create a best-in-class workforce training delivery system.
