Abstract

This study represents the second phase in the legislatively mandated evaluation of the effectiveness of WorkFirst Washington's welfare reform program. WorkFirst's evolution and complexity, coupled with the impact of a 31 percent caseload reduction, is the focus of the report. The report identifies problems with planning, data systems, and contracting. Three JLARC recommendations are aimed at improving these areas.
