National Evaluation of the Welfare-to-Work Grants Program: Final Report. Conclusions and Lessons Learned

09/01/2004

Enrollees in local programs funded by WtW grants received diverse services and experienced substantial economic progress. Despite that progress, the levels of employment and self-sufficiency two years after program entry were below what policymakers and taxpayers may have anticipated. These broad conclusions are supported by the statistical findings presented in this report, which are based primarily on survey data provided by WtW enrollees in 11 study sites and secondarily on state administrative data for the TANF, Food Stamp, and Unemployment Insurance programs. This chapter summarizes key specific conclusions regarding the implementation of WtW grant-funded programs, the services received by WtW enrollees, and their labor market outcomes and well-being two years after program entry.
