Assisting Newcomers through Employment and Support Services: An Evaluation of the New Americans Centers Demonstration Project in Arkansas and Iowa

Abstract

This report presents the final results for the evaluation of the New Americans Centers (NACs) demonstration project in Arkansas and Iowa.This demonstration was funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (ETA).Through the project, ETA provided a three-year grant to Arkansas and Iowa to develop NACs within One-Stop Career Centers in high immigrant population areas.The purposes of the grant were to promote stability and rapid employment with living wages for individuals or family members who were without work or were in need of new work, speed the transition of new immigrants into their communities, assist employers, and enhance the economic development opportunities of these communities.
