2015 Labor Surplus Area List

Posted by Anthony Dais - On September 16, 2014 (EST)

The U.S. Labor Department’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has issued the list of 2015 labor surplus area (LSA) list. A labor surplus area is a statutorily-defined locality that (with some exceptions) has experienced an unemployment rate that is 20% higher than the national average for 2 years. Some Federal, state and local programs use LSA designations to determine eligibility, so your state or locality may be able to benefit from understanding whether areas qualify as an LSA. ETA designates LSA's annually (effective each October 1st), with periodic updates to designate additional LSA's for areas that qualify under special circumstances. The Federal Register Notice announcing the 2014 LSA designations was published on September 16, 2014, and is effective from October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015.

The actual LSA listing, a map of LSAs and other related information (including the guidelines for previous years) can be found at FY 2015 Labor Surplus Area List
