Grants Offered to Prevent Unemployment Insurance Fraud

The Labor Department funding is intended to strengthen unemployment insurance programs.

The U.S. Department of Labor has announced three funding options, that come to a total of $327 million in grants, intended to strengthen states’ unemployment insurance programs. These grants, under the American Rescue Plan Act, allow states to increase fraud prevention, modernize systems, and implement various projects.

Administered by the Employment and Training Administration, these grants enable states to enhance identity verification, update Unemployment Insurance (UI) programs, and improve overpayment recovery.

The Labor Department stated, “The department’s Office of Unemployment Modernization continues to provide direct assistance to help states modernize their UI programs and safeguard them against fraud, while improving equitable access to benefits.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Acting Secretary Julie Su as she oversees the Labor Department.
  • For U.S. labor officials as they allot funding to safeguard unemployment insurance programs.
  • For state leaders as they implement the grants to update and strengthen these programs.
