Welcome to the DEI Grantees Evaluation Portal

Welcome to Social Dynamics' DEI Evaluation webpage! We are looking forward to working with all of the grantees to implement this important evaluation. The DEI Evaluation is a large, multi-year evaluation that uses random assignment and multi-site evaluation procedures. It is designed to improve workforce development systems for people with disabilities, and includes 31 grantees in 26 states and well over 100 workforce investment areas.

Currently, the DEI Evaluation involves five sets of grantees. Round 1 states include Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, New Jersey, New York and Virginia. 2013 will mark the third and final year for Round 1 states. Round 2 states include California, Hawaii, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington and Wisconsin. Round 3 states include Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Rhode Island. Round 4 states include Alabama, Alaska, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Maine, New York and Virginia. Round 5 states include California, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota and South Dakota. Finally, Round 6 states include Alaska, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, New York and Washington.

This site includes our DEI Document Library and access to the Social Dynamics DEI Evaluation Forum, an interactive community of DEI participants. The Forum should be used to share experiences and best practices and seek answers to questions involving implementation. Please access the Forum at any point to begin networking with fellow participants! If you have any questions at all, please contact your state's Evaluation Liaison, listed below.
