About Jeanne

Jeanne Bellotti has extensive expertise in designing and conducting evaluations of programs to help disadvantaged populations prepare for, find, and retain employment. Her work includes leadership roles on large-scale implementation, outcomes, cost, and net-impact studies of employment and training programs for the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

Currently, Bellotti is directing an evaluation of the Jobs Innovation and Accelerator Challenge Grants aimed at enhancing regional economic development. She also directs the Administrative Data Reporting and Analysis project, which uses administrative data to study special populations, including Indian and Native Americans, migrant and seasonal farmworkers, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and Hispanics served by DOL programs. She recently directed study designs for an impact evaluation of a program to educate participants about their rights under employee benefit laws, an evaluation of the Summer Youth Employment Program, and an evaluation of an innovative prisoner reentry program.

Bellotti made two plenary presentations at the Recovering America’s Youth Summits, sponsored by DOL. She has also presented at the DOL Recovery and Reemployment Research Conference and the annual research conference of the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management. She holds an M.S. in public policy from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University.
