Administration for Children & Families
The Division of Economic Independence within the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) has primary responsibility for welfare and family self-sufficiency research. OPRE's research in the area of welfare and family self-sufficiency is designed to expand knowledge about effective programs to promote employment, self-sufficiency, and economic well-being among low-income families. Research focuses on four major areas: (1) Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and the Safety Net; (2) Employment and the Labor Market; (3) Education and Training; and (4) Other and Cross-Cutting Research. Within these areas, OPRE funds experimental impact evaluations, implementation evaluations, and descriptive research projects aimed at informing the design and implementation of programs. OPRE also invests in activities to disseminate rigorous research on welfare and family self-sufficiency topics. This portfolio describes major welfare and family self-sufficiency research projects sponsored by OPRE in Fiscal Year 2014.
