Opportunity Alert: Seeking Program Administrator and Practitioner Perspectives for Listening Sessions on Technical Assistance

Do you have experience receiving technical assistance in a state or local TANF agency, employment and training program, or other human services program serving people with low incomes? The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) and the Office of Family Assistance (OFA) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) invite you to participate in a virtual listening session. These sessions aim to gather a wide range of perspectives to inform ACF’s understanding of the technical assistance needs, challenges, and opportunities in the field. ACF specifically seeks to broaden its knowledge of programmatic technical assistance and research- or evaluation-related technical assistance that can improve services. Input from the listening sessions will inform ACF’s future provision of technical assistance. Participants will receive a nominal honorarium at the conclusion of the session.

The listening session schedule and registration links are listed below. Please register for the session that best aligns with your organization or role. After we receive your registration form, we will review it to confirm your organization and role are relevant to the session. Once approved, we will send a calendar invitation with the Zoom link to join the session. If you are unsure which session you should attend or have any questions, please email OPREconvening@air.org.
