This project supports a multi-component rigorous evaluation of innovative interventions designed to enhance employment outcomes for highly vulnerable populations who have demonstrated difficulty entering and sustaining employment. The evaluation will build on relevant past and ongoing research, and be informed by current labor market trends and policy and practice contexts.
For each intervention included in the evaluation, the project will conduct the following studies:
- Impact study
- Descriptive study
- Cost study
Additionally, the project will explore the role of market-oriented, employer-driven programs in assisting highly vulnerable populations obtain and retain employment.
Mathematica Policy Research is conducting the evaluation.
