Mathematica is providing technical assistance to the Denver Office of Economic Development for their TANF and workforce program redesign to help support implementation and to ensure sustainability of system changes to better serve families in Denver County.
A successful career and the financial stability that comes with it are central to the American dream. But not everyone in or entering the workforce has the education and training necessary to achieve their goals. The barriers to employment are particularly acute for young people in poverty; low-income adults; ex-offenders; veterans, their spouses, and spouses of service members; older workers; persons with disabilities; and laid-off workers in declining industries. Mathematica analyzes programs and policies intended to help these individuals succeed in the labor market, and we help government agencies and nonprofit organizations provide education, training, and employment services more effectively and efficiently.
