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 Technology-Based Learning Grants Interim Report
Release Date :
  May 4, 2011
Abstract :
  In January 2009, ETA awarded funds to 20 grantees in 16 states under a $10 million competitive grant opportunity to develop and implement TBL projects over a three-year period. Grantees include universities and community colleges, private non-profit organizations, a state workforce agency, and a local workforce investment board. The size of the TBL grants ranged widely, from a low of $154,018 to a high of $969,090, and grantees vary in whether they are developing new training programs or are expanding, updating or changing existing programs. This interim report presents findings from the evaluation based primarily on data gathered during site visits to the six grantees that implemented their programs within the first ten months of the grant timeframe. The report focuses on the program design, administration, partnerships, and training methods used by these grantees. It also provides a brief discussion of preliminary outcomes and challenges as well as some promising practices that are emerging from these programs. The final report will be based on all data collected during the evaluation on the fourteen remaining grantees, and any significant activities of the first six grants.
