This is the executive summary for the final report from the LEAP evaluation. The report examines the implementation experiences of LEAP grantees in establishing jail-based American Job Centers (AJCs) and linking them to community-based AJCs in 20 sites across the U.S., including early start-up, perceived successes and challenges, steady-state operations, and plans for sustainability as the grants ended. This report describes findings, considers lessons learned, and presents practices that appear potentially promising for future efforts to improve employment outcomes among people with histories of justice involvement.
