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 :
  The Evaluation of the Individual Training Account / Eligible Training Provider Demonstration
Release Date :
Abstract :
  The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 requires that, with certain exceptions, training services be delivered through the use of Individual Training Accounts (ITAs), which participants can use to procure the training of their choice, so long as the training program is on a state’s eligible training provider (ETP) list. In March 2000, the U.S. Department of Labor made grant awards to thirteen states and local areas as part of the ITA/ETP Demonstration, to provide support for ITA and ETP system development and encourage innovative approaches and practices. This report presents findings from the evaluation of these grantees’ efforts. As such, it describes the grantees’ accomplishments with their grant funds, the ITA policies and practices they formulated, how ETP lists were assembled, and what information was available about eligible programs that customers could use to make their training choices.
