The Annie E. Casey Foundation is committed to supporting culturally relevant programs developed by people of color that show emerging evidence of effectiveness and are prepared to move toward more rigorous evaluation.
Building on our previous work, this project provides technical assistance to strengthen the evaluation capacity of the foundation’s Building Evidence to Advance Equity grantees. Using the Permanency Innovations Initiative (PII) framework, we center grantee voices while collaboratively engaging in the following activities—
- Creating individualized plans to build evaluation capacity
- Using tools and activities to establish logic models and research questions
- Assisting in developing plans for measuring fidelity and future evaluation
- Highlighting grantee accomplishments and evaluation readiness in program profiles
