Publication Date: May 15, 2001


This report documents the findings from a short-term study that Mathematica Policy Research Inc. conducted to help the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families Office of Policy Research and Evaluation identify promising employment-focused strategies for individuals on welfare who face challenges in their efforts to leave welfare for work. The study was designed to achieve two goals: (1) to identify and provide detailed information about the design and structure of work-based programs that serve or that have the potential to serve hard-to-employ TANF recipients and (2) to assess the feasibility of conducting a rigorous large-scale evaluation of such programs.
