ARRA LMI GRANT PRODUCTS ISSUED
The Labor Department’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has issued virtually all products funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s (ARRA) nearly $50 million State Labor Market Information (LMI) Improvement Grants.
Everything can be accessed from ARRA State LMI Improvement Grant Products, including a catalogue of state products, evaluations, practitioner briefs, a Webinar, and podcasts listed below. Although concentrating on green jobs, the project resulted in other useful products, including real-time employment data.
1. A 100-plus page Catalogue of Products from State LMI Improvement Grants, which provides the most complete listing of the work done by the participating states.
2. Two evaluation studies of the project by Mathematica Policy Research: a Final Evaluation Report, and a Summary Report. Note that the Summary Report is not merely an abstract of the full report, but contains extremely useful information on the grantees that were not included in the site visits. There is also a 5-minute podcast (and accompanying transcript) summarizing the evaluation.
3. A Webinar providing a thorough overview of the entire project, which includes PowerPoint slides, a recording and a transcript.
4. Three “LMI Practitioner Briefs,” each several pages long, and each accompanied by a roughly 5-minute podcast and transcript:
