Release Date :
  April 25, 2011
Abstract :
  The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) received economic stimulus funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) that were intended to provide jobs, expand access to Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits, employment services, and retrain millions of unemployed workers during the “”Great Recession”. Programs that received additional allocated funds included the Workforce Investment Act’s Adult and Dislocation Workers Programs, Wagner-Peyser Act for unrestricted services and reemployment services, and the UI program. The evaluation project is measuring program progress and challenges of implementing the workforce and UI provisions of the Recovery Act, to highlight new and promising practices, and to provide guidance to ETA, the states, and local workforce investment areas. The project, will deliver an interim report and a final report, and both will provide systemic in-depth information about the implementation of the workforce components of the Recovery Act. This interim report summarizes five surveys of states conducted by the National Association of State Workforce Agencies and the first round of site visits to 20 states.
