Interim Status Report on Research on the Outcomes of Welfare Reform. Welfare Outcomes Grants Technical Assistance Contractor


Contractor support may be needed to support ASPE staff in working with the 14 grantees awarded welfare outcomes grants in fiscal year 1998, as well as the additional grantees expected to be awarded grants in fiscal year 1999.  Activities could include gathering the various grantees together for national planning meetings (including providing experts to present technical assistance to the grantees and handling meeting­related logistical matters), providing technical assistance, working with them to enhance research quality and comparability across grantees, and synthesizing the FY 1998 state and county grantees’ findings into a publishable report.
