Helping Low-Skilled Americans Find Work: Strengthening the Capacity of State Employment Agencies

Grant Year: 2020

Randall Eberts will lead an effort to examine whether state employment agencies can play a more effective role in preparing low-skilled individuals for success in the workforce. He will analyze data from six states that provide information on individuals who have enrolled in state workforce development programs, including their socioeconomic background, educational attainment, and employment and earnings both before and after enrollment. The project’s findings will be presented in a series of reports, papers, and briefings for state officials.
