Implementation of the Welfare-to-Work Grants Program. V. Service Models and Pathways to Employment


The WtW grants were intended not only to move individuals into jobs, but also to help them obtain the kind of jobs that could potentially lead to sustained employment, career advancement, and self-sufficiency. While all of the study programs have maintained employment as their highest priority, each adopted a range of strategies to help individuals prepare for and move into the labor market, as discussed in the previous chapter.

Job placement rates varied across the programs studied, reflecting different program models as well as individual pathways to employment.
