Evaluation of Kessler Foundation Community Employment Grant Program Grantees

Friday, December 11, 2015

In 2015, the Kessler Foundation requested that the Heldrich Center begin performing regular evaluations of the Foundation’s Community Employment Grant Program grantees that are largely located in the State of New Jersey. Similar to the Kessler Foundation Signature Grant evaluations, the Center is using tested evaluation approaches designed to provide feedback to the Foundation on the effectiveness of the grant programs in meeting their stated goals, and to provide feedback to grantees about the best ways to establish and manage their programs in order to maximize the probability that people with disabilities will be employed upon program completion. The Heldrich Center is currently evaluating five grantees for this project. (Funded by the Kessler Foundation)
