    The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), in coordination with DOL's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), announces the availability of approximately $22 million for cooperative agreements to state Workforce Investment Act (WIA) administering entities.

This funding is being used to implement the Disability Employment Initiative (DEI), under which the Department intends to make 6 to 10 grant awards that are designed to: 1) improve educational, training, and employment opportunities and outcomes of youth and adults with disabilities who are unemployed, underemployed and/or receiving Social Security disability benefits; and 2) help these individuals with disabilities find a path into the middle class through exemplary and model service delivery by the public workforce system. DEI grants will be awarded for a three year period of performance. Grants will be issued as cooperative agreements with the expectation that there will be considerable engagement by ETA and ODEP with states and their local workforce investment areas throughout the life of the Initiative. Extensive technical assistance will be available to grantees and an independent evaluation of the projects will be conducted utilizing quantitative and qualitative data from grantees.

  • Notice of Availability of Funds and Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA) to Fund Demonstration Projects - SGA/DFA PY 09-10

    The U. S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration announces the availability of over $12 million from funds made available in the Fiscal Year 2010 budget for Training and Employment Services for State Workforce Agencies (SWA) to develop the Workforce Data Quality Initiative (WDQI). Grants awarded will provide SWAs the opportunity to develop and use State workforce longitudinal administrative data systems. These State longitudinal data systems will, at a minimum, include information on programs that provide training, employment services, and unemployment insurance and will be linked longitudinally at the individual level to allow for analysis which will lead to enhanced opportunity for program evaluation and better information for customers and stakeholders of the workforce system. Where such longitudinal systems do not exist or are incipient, WDQI grant funds may be used to design and develop workforce data systems that are longitudinal and which are designed to link with relevant education data or longitudinal education data systems. WDQI grant funds may also be used to improve upon and more effectively use existing State longitudinal systems. This grant opportunity places an emphasis on promoting improvements to the quality, range, and accessibility of workforce information. Awards will be made to up to 12 states to develop these workforce longitudinal databases. Single state applicants may qualify for up to $1 million and states applying as a multi-state consortium may qualify for an award of up to $3 million. Each grantee will be expected to establish or enhance their workforce longitudinal database, to conduct data analysis, and provide results to consumers and stakeholders within the three-year grant period.
