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 :
  Evaluation of the Significant Improvement Demonstration Grants for the Provision of Reemployment Services for UI Claimants
Release Date :
Abstract :
  Early reviews of the WPRS systems suggested ways to improve states' systems, such as updating profiling models more often, intensifying services, and better coordination among UI, Employment Services (ES), and Workforce Investment Act (WIA) programs. Acting on these suggestions, ETA awarded Significant Improvement Demonstration Grants (SIGs) in June 1999 to 11 states (Alaska, California, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin). The two-year SIGs were intended to increase the effectiveness of WPRS systems and reemployment services for UI claimants. Further grant goals were to help shape future policy and to support implementation of the WIA. This final report describes findings from data collection activities conducted during 2000 and 2001.
