Publisher: Princeton, NJ: Mathematica Policy Research
Jan 11, 2017
- From January 2013 through June 2015, close to 5,000 UI recipients entered SEA programs, and six states had an active program at the end of 2015.
- Program champions were instrumental in the establishment and maintenance of the program, building support for the program among partners and within the state labor departments.
- SEA programs typically rely on partners, such as Small Business Development Centers, to provide important business development supports, including counseling, mentoring, or training, to program participants.
- The breadth and intensity of SEA services and supports offered in study states often changed over time, usually in response to fluctuations in available funding.
