State and Local Efforts Now Have a Toolkit to Improve Responsible Data Sharing

This week we published our “ACF Confidentiality Toolkit.” It’s a document that we’ve been working on for several years. Its goal is to help state and local efforts to understand how and when it is appropriate to share information about a family or individual, in order to provide more effective services, in ways consistent with confidentiality laws and requirements.

This is the latest product of the ACF Interoperability Initiative designed to support improved integration across human service programs and the systems that support them.

We hope the ACF Confidentiality Toolkit will help state and local efforts by:

  • Providing examples of how confidentiality requirements can be addressed and met in a manner fully consistent with governing laws and underlying policies
  • Including sample Memoranda of Understandings and data sharing agreements
  • Providing helpful guidance to states and localities
