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 :
  Analysis of the WIA Allotment Formula for Distributing Funds to the States
Release Date :
Abstract :

This study examines the way Federal funds are distributed to the states to carry out the adult and dislocated workers programs under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998.  The study examines how year-to-year allotments change due to changes in the unemployment factors used to make the adult and dislocated worker calculations; the differences the hold-harmless provisions make to the adult allotments; the effects of the economically disadvantaged factor, using data from the Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates program; and how closely the dislocated worker allotments match the distribution of program eligibles.
