Family Employment Program (FEP)

In fall 2011, the Social Research Institute (SRI) of the University of Utah’s College of Social Work partnered with Utah’s Department of Workforce Services (DWS) to conduct a longitudinal study of new FEP participants beginning their experience with cash assistance, following a significant redesign of the FEP program.

The purpose of the study was to:

  1. Provide information regarding basic demographics, attitudes, employment supports and barriers, and experiences with DWS,
  2. Monitor outcomes for this group over time, and
  3. Investigate differences between this cohort and the original FEP Study cohort which had engaged in an identical study from 2006 – 2008.
