Building Usage, Improvement, and Learning with Data in Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood Programs (BUILD HMRF)

2020-2025

The purpose of the Building Usage, Improvement, and Learning with Data in HMRF programs (BUILD HMRF) project is to provide technical assistance to ACF’s fourth cohort (2020 — 2025) of Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood (HMRF) grantees through:  

  • fostering high quality data collection;
  • supporting continuous quality improvement efforts; and
  • conducting cross-site performance measures analysis.

To accomplish this, OPRE is collaborating closely with the program office and funder, ACF’s Office of Family Assistance, and all HMRF grantees, to:

  • implement, maintain, and enhance a data collection system (nFORM) with updated tools and processes;
  • provide ongoing support to HMRF grantees and build capacity for performance monitoring and data-driven program improvement; and
  • provide cross-grantee analyses to support ACF performance monitoring and reporting and advance understanding of HMRF programs, services, and outcomes.

This project is being conducted by Mathematica.
