available downloads

This tip sheet is designed to support state and local stakeholders in developing an evaluation plan for a child welfare intervention. A clear and comprehensive plan improves the likelihood of a successful evaluation by ensuring that the design is aligned with the intervention’s goals and objectives, potential challenges are addressed, and roles and responsibilities are assigned.

The tip sheet presents components to consider including in an evaluation plan. It may be useful for states developing title IV-E prevention services plans under the Family First Prevention Services Act, Children’s Bureau discretionary grantees, service providers, foundations, nonprofit organizations, researchers, evaluators, and others.
