Lessons Learned from the BICS Demonstration Grants
This resource compiles the six articles from Behavioral Interventions for Child Support Services (BICS) grantees that appeared in Child Support Report in 2018. The article series highlighted the experiences of child support agencies and staff, the benefits of BICS interventions for parents, and the variety of ways that behavioral strategies have been applied. OCSE awarded BICS demonstration grants to eight child support agencies in 2014 to test how behavioral economics principles can improve child support program processes and outcomes. The eight grantees are California, Colorado, Georgia, Ohio, Texas, Vermont, Washington, and the District of Columbia.
