This report represents the final synthesis of the Behavioral Interventions to Advance Self-Sufficiency project. Overall, the project’s findings demonstrated that applying behavioral insights to challenges facing human services programs can improve program efficiency, operations, and outcomes at a relatively low cost.

The report discusses in detail:

  • overall findings from the project;
  • lessons learned during the knowledge development period as well as across the project’s sites;
  • the broader context in which the findings are situated, with respect to both applied behavioral insights and human services; and
  • implications for future research and practice.

Each chapter is accompanied by at least one independent commentary by an expert in the field.
