In 2003, the Employment and Training Administration funded the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development for a three-year effort to implement the Strengthening the Connections Between Unemployment Insurance and One-Stop Delivery System Demonstration Project. The demonstration sought to find innovative and effective approaches to facilitate linkages between the Wisconsin Unemployment Insurance (UI) and Job Service, which operates the state's One-Stop Career Centers. The project's objectives were to: 1) better connect UI claimants with One-Stop Career Center reemployment services, and 2) better connect its UI and Job Service divisions via data-sharing and joint provision of services.
