Description
This study examined the effects of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) on workforce programs that provided income support to the unemployed and employment and training services designed to speed reemployment through improved job search techniques, better information about job openings, job training, and other aspects of upgrading worker skills. The study focused primarily upon the activities states and local areas had undertaken as a part of the Recovery Act. The programs included the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), Title I programs (adult and dislocated worker only), Unemployment Insurance (UI), Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), the Wager-Peyser Act / Employment Services program, and Reemployment Services for UI recipients. System-wide issues such as green jobs, workforce staffing, and the use of labor market information affected by the Recovery Act provisions were also examined.
