PATH: Partnership. Accountability. Training. Hope.
Information about PATH (Partnership. Accountability. Training. Hope.) program.
Applicants for cash assistance will take part in a robust, results-oriented work participation program - PATH. The program features a 21-day assessment period during which barriers to employment are identified and caseworkers work individually with clients to connect them with resources to address these barriers. This intensive orientation period is a departure from the previous program, JET (Jobs, Education and Training), in which orientation periods varied across the state from one to three days. The orientation and job placement program under PATH will continue to be administered by the Workforce Development Agency and Michigan Works! Agencies, which hold the contracts for these activities statewide. Learn more at www.michigan.gov/PATH.
