Abstract: The Center for the Study of Human Resources (CHR) of the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin conducted a multi-year evaluation (FFY 1993 through FFY 1995) of the Texas Food Stamp Employment and Training (E&T)/Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) Program Conformance Demonstration under a contract to the Texas Department of Human Services (DHS).

The evaluation was designed to describe and monitor policies and practices developed and implemented for the demonstration—known as the BOND program—and to assess their preliminary impacts on service delivery, participation, costs and outcomes. This report presents the results from the cost analysis of the BOND evaluation. The cost study reinforces concern with the enormous cost of providing child care and other support services for participants in long-term education and training. The report asks to what degree can and will employment and training programs support higher initial costs to achieve potentially better outcomes.
