Grants to Address Trafficking Within the Child Welfare Population: Summary of Program and Evaluation PlansProject: Technical Assistance on Evaluation for Discretionary Grant Programs
In 2014, the Children’s Bureau awarded nine grants to increase awareness of child trafficking and improve cross-system responses to trafficking within the child welfare population. As part of their 5-year awards, grantees are conducting a mixed-methods process evaluation to document implementation of their innovative projects.
This report highlights the progress of the grantee cluster in the first 2 years of implementation. It details the projects’ core features, target populations, geographic scope, and evaluation designs.
The report includes a cluster-wide logic model created by JBA in its role as evaluation technical assistance advisor. We are supporting grantees as they conduct their evaluations and leading efforts to collect common data across the cluster, including a survey to assess awareness of trafficking in child welfare.
