Department of Labor announced the availability of $12 million for Workforce Data Quality Initiative (WDQI) grants. Grants will allow State Workforce Agencies to develop and use State workforce longitudinal administrative data systems, which include information from programs that provide training, employment services, and unemployment insurance.
Eligible applicants are State Workforce Agencies that were not recipients of a round one WDQI grant. The Department plans to award approximately twelve grants of up to $1 million each for a 36 month grant period.
The deadline to apply for a grant is April 19, 2012. More information can be found here.
