Focuses on Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment (REA) Initiative impacts during the period from July 2009 and December 2009.
"In late 2008, USDOL asked IMPAQ International to study the effectiveness of REAs in achieving the program’s goals of reducing UI duration and saving UI trust fund resources by helping beneficiaries find jobs faster and eliminating payments to ineligible individuals. The current study focuses on REA program impacts during the period from July 2009 and December 2009. The study includes process and impact analyses of REA programs in four states: Florida, Idaho, Illinois, and Nevada. Using an experimental design, IMPAQ rigorously measured the net impact of the REA initiative in these study states. IMPAQ also examined best practices in a sample of REA states. This report presents the results of all these analyses" (p.1). (Abstractor: Author)
