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

In 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act amended the Trade Act of 1974 to authorize the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant Program.

On March 30, 2010, the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (Reconciliation Act), Public Law No. 111-152, 19 USC 2372 - 2372a, appropriated $2 billion for Fiscal Years (FY) 2011 - 2014 ($500 million annually for each of four years) for the TAACCCT program. Due to sequestration, $1.938 billion of that amount was obligated.

In accordance with the requirements of TAACCCT, the Department awarded at least 0.5 percent of the total amount of available funds each year to eligible institutions in each State, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Funding by State is summarized in The Broad Reach of TAACCCT Funding.
