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

Title :
  Serving Dislocated Farmers: An Evaluation of the EDWAA Farmers and Ranchers Demonstration
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report concludes the evaluation of the Economic Dislocation and Workers Adjustment Assistance (EDWAA) Act Farmers and Ranchers Demonstration. The Farmers and Ranchers Demonstration was authorized by the U.S. Congress under Section 324 of EDWAA in 1988, and was initiated by the Department of Labor on July 1, 1990, with grants to four states. These grants provided for employment and training services to dislocated and at-risk farmers and ranchers, spouses and dependents, and farmhands. The purpose of the evaluation has been to assess the need for services to this population, assess the effectiveness of strategies developed by demonstration projects, and disseminate the findings to an audience of policy makers and practitioners.
