In September 2018, OCSE awarded Section 1115 grants for the Digital Marketing project Visit disclaimer page to 12 state and 2 tribal child support agencies in California, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma (Cherokee Nation), Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin (Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Indians), and Wyoming.
The two-year demonstration project will allow grantees to test digital marketing approaches and partnerships to reach parents that could benefit from child support services, and create or improve two-way digital communication and engagement with parents.
