The Welfare-to-Work Grants Program: Enrollee Outcomes One Year After Program Entry. Conclusions


Enrollees in local programs funded by WtW grants received diverse services and experienced substantial economic progress during the initial year following program entry. Despite that progress, the year-end levels of employment and self-sufficiency 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 across the country. This chapter summarizes key specific conclusions regarding the services received by WtW enrollees, their employment outcomes, and their well-being one year after enrollment.
