Challenges and Solutions in Evaluation Technical Assistance During Design and Early Implementation

This research-to-practice brief assesses the impact of evaluation technical assistance (ETA) provided to grantees under two federal initiatives: Youth At-Risk of Homelessness (YARH), funded by the Children’s Bureau of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Performance Partnership Pilots for Disconnected Youth (P3), a multi-agency funded initiative. The brief covers details about the grant programs and the provision of ETA evaluation offered; success, utilization, and benefits of ETA; how program requirements and evaluation needs were balanced; and how to make ETA successful for this and similar programs targeting disconnected youth.
