Rounds 1 and 2 TAACCCT Reports

In Rounds 1 and 2, DOL awarded three- to four-year grants to 128 institutions of higher education in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Our team developed two reports—an implementation study report and a report synthesizing the implementation and impact findings from the third-party evaluations across the Rounds 1 and 2 grants.

The Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grant Program: Implementation of the Rounds 1 and 2 Grants

From 2011 to 2018, the US Department of Labor administered the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program, which awarded $1.9 billion to institutions of higher education with programs of two years or less, mainly community colleges. Colleges sought to increase their capacity to provide education and training to adults in need of new skills for in-demand jobs. This report, part of a series of publications from the TAACCCT national evaluation, presents findings on the implementation of the Rounds 1 and 2 grants, based on a survey of colleges, college and partner interviews, and participant focus groups.

Synthesis of Findings from the Rounds 1 and 2 Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Third-Party Evaluations

From 2011 to 2018, the US Department of Labor administered the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program, which awarded $1.9 billion to institutions of higher education with programs of two years or less, mainly community colleges. Colleges sought to increase their capacity to provide education and training to adults in need of new skills for in-demand jobs. This report, part of a series of publications from the TAACCCT national evaluation, synthesizes the implementation and impact findings from nine Round 1 and 78 Round 2 grantee-sponsored, third-party evaluations.
