H-1B Technical Skills Training Evaluation

The Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is funding a study to determine whether H-1B Technical Skills Training Grants have bolstered the skills of the American workforce in industries and occupations that currently rely on workers with H-1B visas. The evaluation is comprised of two key components: 1) a rigorous random assignment-based impact evaluation and 2) an in-depth process study (including multiple “special topics” analyses) that offers lessons and best practices on the design, implementation, and operation of the grant-funded programs. As a subcontractor to Abt Associates, MEF Associates is co-leading the process study and is involved in all key tasks.
