This is the first of a 2-volume final report of a 20-month research and development project conducted by the Michigan State Employment Service agency and a private research firm.

Included are: (1) a description of the problem including steps taken to solve it and the resulting demonstration model, (2) the quantitative and qualitative results of the demonstration, (3) the implications for new policy and program directions, and (4) a discussion of areas requiring further research and experimentation.
