One of our key values is to be results-driven by evaluating our programs with accountability, identifying effective strategies, and integrating them into our policies and practices. In addition to our work with grantees to regularly monitor program performance, OTIP partners with the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation to assess key questions on program implementation according to ACF's Evaluation Policy.
Current ACF Evaluation Projects

Evaluation of grantee policies, practices, and services – including a focus on access to long-term housing options, substance abuse treatment, and integration of survivor-informed services.
Evaluation of activities, procedures, organization, customer service, and immediate outcomes of the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
Past ACF Evaluation Projects
Identified key findings and recommendations from surveys and interviews with training participants to enhance training for healthcare providers to “Stop, Observe, Ask, and Respond to Human Trafficking”.
