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

Planning Guidance and Instructions for Submission of a Two-Year Strategic Plan for the Indian and Native American (INA), Section 166 program for Program Years (PY) 2008–2009; applying the Native American Talent and Economic Development (NATED) framework

To provide planning guidelines and instructions to Native American grantees for the development of a strategic two-year Comprehensive Services Program (CSP) plan and Supplemental Youth Services Program (SYSP) plan for PY 2008-2009. Native American entities designated as a Section 166 grantee for PY 2008-2009 must submit a two-year plan for meeting the employment and training needs of Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians consistent with the purposes described in Section 166 of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA).

The requirement to submit a two-year strategic plan is contingent upon your organization being “Designated” as a Section 166 grantee for PY 2008-2009. Grantees that are not designated as a Section 166 grantee for PY 2008-2009 will not receive Section 166 funds and therefore, there is no need for them to submit a two-year plan. Grant designations will be made in accordance with the procedures described in the Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA) process which was published in the Federal Register on January 4, 2008 (73 Federal Re. 883).

As indicated in No. 4 below, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) expects the initial submission of the two-year plan to thoroughly address the guiding questions in Attachment B. Plans that fail to meet these standards will not be approved. Therefore, grantees are encouraged to begin working on their two-year strategic plan as soon as they receive this TEGL.
