Random Assignment Evaluation of the Prisoner Re-Entry Initiative (PRI) pdf format
The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (DOL/ETA) is soliciting proposals to select a contractor to conduct a rigorous, random-assignment evaluation of Prisoner Re-Entry Initiative (PRI), a demonstration serving formerly incarcerated individuals through employment-centered programs. The evaluation will examine PRI’s impact on participants’ post-program labor market outcomes and criminal recidivism by comparing outcomes of PRI participants to the outcomes of randomly-assigned individuals who are eligible for, but do not receive, PRI services. Each member of the research sample will be tracked for at least one year after random assignment, which will be completed during the contract’s initial performance period.
