Modernize Labor and Workforce Development Systems
Reduce backlog while having the flexibility to adapt to new laws and prevent fraud
Problem Agencies Face
The coronavirus pandemic caused more than 9.5 million American workers to lose their jobs, with about 4 million out of work for half a year or longer.
In response, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act. The act provides $2 billion in funding to the U.S. Department of Labor to promote equitable access to and timely payment of benefits by reducing backlogs in the unemployment insurance system. Portions of the allocation also are dedicated to modernizing antiquated state UI systems so states can respond to rapidly changing laws and economic conditions, and to preventing and detecting fraud.

With a record amount of unemployment insurance claims being submitted, agencies need modern systems to reduce the backlog of claims, detect and prevent fraud, and distribute timely payment of benefits.
