JBA recently received four new awards:
- Synthesis of the Title IV-E Child Welfare Waiver Demonstration Projects (Children’s Bureau) was awarded a new task order to complete work on synthesizing evaluation findings from the jurisdictions in the 2012, 2013, and 2014 demonstration cohorts, including child welfare services, outcomes, and evidence-based practice implementation.
- Cross-Center Evaluation of the Child Welfare Capacity Building Centers (Children’s Bureau) was awarded new funding that will allow JBA to engage in a variety of dissemination activities for sharing findings from the mixed-methods evaluation of the technical assistance services provided by the Capacity Building Center for States, Center for Tribes, and Center for Courts to help child welfare systems improve outcomes for children and families; this includes development of a public-facing final report and executive summary, presentations at national conferences, and development of journal articles.
- Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program: Developing Strategies to Facilitate Cross-Model Collaboration and Data Sharing (Health Resources and Services Administration, as a subcontractor to Johns Hopkins University and in partnership with Child Trends) will foster information sharing among evidence-based home visiting model developers to answer key research questions about precision home visiting.
- Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program: Feasibility Study and Pilot of the Home Visiting Budget Assistance Tool (Health Resources and Services Administration, as a subcontractor to RTI International) will test the feasibility of statewide implementation of a home visiting cost measurement instrument and explore its use for supporting benefit-cost analysis and financing policies.
