U.S. Department of Labor News Release (04/19/12)
The U.S. Department of Labor has announced guidance for state demonstration projects to identify innovative strategies that quickly connect unemployed workers with good jobs. Up to 10 states will be able to use administrative funding—or apply for a waiver to use Unemployment Insurance Trust Funds—to implement and evaluate programs that expedite the ability of people to return to work.
The newly released guidance provides details on the application process, activities that may be pursued, the requirements for obtaining a waiver of the withdrawal standard or methods of administration requirements in existing law, and the requirements for evaluation of the demonstration projects.
