What is the PATH program?
The PATH program features a 10-day application eligibility period (AEP) during which local Michigan Works! offices assess, evaluate and prepare applicants to attain employment, meet federal work participation requirements, and work towards self-sufficiency.
The primary goals of PATH are twofold. First, identify barriers and help participants connect to the resources they need to obtain employment. Second, help Michigan reach the federally mandated 50% work participation rate. Work participation is defined by how many participants secure employment and the number of participants engaged in job preparedness and search activities.
