Portfolios of Research in Welfare and Family Self-Sufficiency

Project Overview

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 five major areas, including:

  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families
  • Employment and the Labor Market
  • Education and Training
  • Behavioral Science
  • Cross-Cutting and Other Safety Net 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 and highlight recent research findings.

The point of contact is Victoria Kabak.
