OFA Webinar: How the Project IMPROVE LI2 Process Can Help Your TANF Program Improve Outcomes for Low-Income Families

Project IMPROVE, which is funded by the Office of Family Assistance (OFA), is a training and technical assistance resource for TANF programs interested in improving outcomes for low-income families. Under contract with OFA, Mathematica Policy Research works in partnership with state and local TANF agencies using the Learn, Innovate, Improve (LI2) process to execute collaborative, evidence-informed program change. LI2 was developed by Mathematica in partnership with the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University with support from the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation. This process has been or is being used in dozens of TANF and workforce agencies across the country to design, implement, and test innovative strategies to improve program performance and client outcomes.
 
This OFA-sponsored webinar on October 26th from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. EST will provide an overview of the LI2 process, drawing upon recent examples of how it has helped large and small, urban and rural TANF programs make targeted improvements and manage change. We will highlight innovations that have emerged from TANF programs using this process and invite you to consider how LI2 might be a helpful approach to you and your program as you seek to better serve families. Presenters will include Michelle Derr and Johnathan McCay from Mathematica Policy Research, Dena Jardine from the Larimer County Workforce Center in Colorado, and Noelle Simmons from the San Francisco Human Services Agency.
