Evaluation of the New Jersey Individual Training Grant Program for Dislocated Workers

In 2000, the Heldrich Center completed a quasi-experimental evaluation that used Unemployment Insurance wage records to measure the employment experiences of dislocated workers who received a training grant from the State of New Jersey. These outcomes were compared to the experiences of similar group of dislocated workers who did not receive training. The outcome analysis was supplemented by a telephone survey of individuals receiving an Individual Training grant to determine their perceptions of the effect of the training.

Conducted for the New Jersey State Employment and Training Commission, 1997-2000.
