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.
