This book addresses the statistical relationship between receipt of housing assistance for welfare recipients and subsequent success in the labor market using data from two random assignment welfare reform experiments: the Connecticut Jobs First program and the Minnesota Family Investment Program. In this report several key questions are addressed regarding the relationship between housing status and the effectiveness of welfare policies, including whether welfare recipients who receive housing assistance are harder to employ than those who do not; and whether or not welfare reform initiatives are more effective or less effective for welfare recipients who receive housing assistance. The authors also examine whether the effectiveness of welfare reform initiatives vary among those receiving different types of housing subsidies. (Authors)
