Family Employment Program: Snapshot in Time

In Fall 2005, 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.

The purpose would be to:

  1. Provide information regarding basic demographics, attitudes, employment supports and barriers, and experiences with DWS;
  2. Investigate differences between the general FEP population and other groups such as the long term recipients; and
  3. Monitor outcomes for this group over time.

This research endeavor was unique in both the population under study (new TANF recipients), and because the study would capture the first impacts of the newly implemented Deficit Reduction Act of 2005.
