Fatherhood and Marriage Local Evaluation (FaMLE) and Cross-Site Project, 2013-2018

Project Overview

The purpose of the Fatherhood and Marriage Local Evaluation and Cross-Site Project is to support high quality data collection, strengthen local evaluations, and conduct cross-site performance measures analysis for the third cohort (2015-2020) of Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Marriage grantees. The project has updated performance measures for these programs and has developed a program-specific Management Information System for these measures called nFORM (Information, Family Outcomes, Reporting, and Management). The project is also supporting more than 20 grantees and their independent evaluators as they conduct grantee-specific impact evaluations of their programs (these are called “local evaluations”). The project will address how grantees designed and implemented their programs, as well as the reported outcomes for participants in the programs. Taken together, these activities will further ACF’s understanding of Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Marriage programs. The project is being conducted by Mathematica Policy Research.

The point of contact is Seth Chamberlain.
