The Welfare-to-Work Grants Program: Enrollee Outcomes One Year After Program Entry. Who Enrolled in Welfare-to-work?


The WtW Grants Program was designed to serve adults at risk of long-term dependency on TANF and other forms of public assistance. This chapter describes the individuals the program actually served by characterizing WtW enrollees at the time they enrolled (henceforth termed "at the time of program entry") in terms of their demographic characteristics, labor market assets and liabilities, previous involvement in the welfare system, and employment history.

The sources of the data used in this chapter are the evaluation's baseline survey of WtW enrollees, who completed a background information form when they entered the program, and state automated files containing employer-reported data on earnings on jobs covered by Unemployment Insurance.(13)
