Welfare to Work Voucher Program Final Report 2001

Prepared by Quadel Consulting Corporation for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, April 2001

In December 1999, Quadel Consulting was awarded a contract to provide a broad-range of technical assistance to WtW sites during the first year of program implementation. Technical assistance activities included organizing a national conference; providing individual assistance to PHAs with WtW Voucher programs, including onsite technical assistance as-needed; developing and maintaining a Web site dedicated to the interests of WtW PHAs; conducting a series of teleconferences on issues related to building the capacity of WtW programs; and coordinating workshops.

In March 2001, after the WtW voucher program had been in place for 15 months, Quadel Consulting conducted a comprehensive assessment of the WtW program by gathering information from each program site. The results of this assessment are detailed in the Welfare to Work Voucher Program Final Report. This report focuses on lessons learned and best practices for all aspects of program implementation, as well as recommendations for ensuring continued success of the WtW Voucher Program.

Note: This report is the final deliverable under Quadel Consulting Corporation's previous contract to provide technical assistance to HUD's WtW voucher program. Quadel Consulting Corporation wrote this final report and its contents do not necessarily reflect the opinions and policies of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
