STATE OF WISCONSIN
Goodwill Industries International has received a $20 million grant to recruit and train up to 10,000 welfare recipients as enumerators (door-to-door canvassers) for Census 2000. Goodwill will recruit welfare recipients, provide them with job readiness training, coordinate support services for them, and attempt to find them permanent jobs when the temporary census work ends.
The Census Bureau will provide the workers on-the-job training and pay them at local rates ranging from $8 to $20 per hour plus mileage. The jobs will last four to six weeks, beginning in April 2000.
Former foster youth ages 18-28, who were in foster care at age 18, are eligible under the Title VIII Welfare-to-Work Amendment of 1999. [Sec.801(c)(aa)(bb)]
