Portfolios of Research in Welfare and Family Self-Sufficiency
OPRE’s welfare and family self-sufficiency research includes experimental impact evaluations, implementation evaluations and descriptive research projects to expand knowledge about effective programs that promote employment, self-sufficiency and economic well-being among low-income families. Research focuses on four major areas, including:
- TANF and the Safety Net
- Employment and the Labor Market
- Education and Training
- Other Cross-Cutting Research
Each year, OPRE publishes the Portfolio of Research in Welfare and Family Self-Sufficiency to describe major welfare and family self-sufficiency research projects sponsored by OPRE in the previous fiscal year.
The points of contact are Emily Schmitt and Brendan Kelly.
