State Labor Market Information (LMI) Improvement Grants - Evaluation Results Webinar

In February 2009, President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) into law to address the employment challenges facing America's work-force. Among other investments, the Recovery Act included $500 million to support jobs (also known as "green jobs") in the energy-efficiency and renewable-energy industries. While 90 percent of the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Recovery Act green-jobs funding went to support training programs for workers, $50 million was reserved for grants to state work-force agencies for improving labor market information (LMI). As part of that effort, 30 state LMI improvement grants were awarded to 24 individual states and to six state consortia to improve LMI on green jobs and enhance the labor exchange infrastructure.

In September 2010, the Employment and Training Administration contracted with Mathematica Policy Research to evaluate the extent to which the State LMI Improvement (SLMII) grant programs achieved their stated purposes. Mathematica was asked to broadly document the activities of all grantees, provide a detailed description of the activities and partnerships for a subset of grantees, and to identify grantees’ challenges and promising practices. This webinar will discuss the results of the evaluation and provide insights that will inform future workforce and economic development decision making.
