Hardest to Help: Reskilling Dislocated Workers

Grant Year: 2021

Tamar Jacoby will explore the landscape of training programs for dislocated workers to identify examples that increase opportunities for employment and upward economic mobility. She will examine a variety of training programs that appear to hold promise in supporting workers who have lost their jobs, assess how they differ from traditional job training programs, and consider their suitability for rigorous quantitative assessments of their effectiveness. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
