    This brief presents information on work requirement policies implemented by public housing agencies and estimates the percent of households affected by the requirements. Noting the lack of evidence on the outcomes and effects of work requirements on households’ employment and income and on the agencies’ implementation costs, it closes with questions to guide future research and policy considerations.

    This brief provides five practical tips for healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) practitioners interested in teaching HMRE in high schools. The tips are primarily for HMRE practitioners developing a school-based program for the first time, but they also have use for practitioners looking to improve or expand an existing school-based program. The tips help address a current need for research and information on HMRE programs for youth (Scott et al. 2017). From 2011 to 2015, about half the participants served by HMRE grants from the Office of Family Assistance were under age 18 (Scott et al. 2017). However, most research on HMRE programming focuses on adult couples in existing, committed relationships (Hawkins 2017). The tips draw on data from multiple sources. The main source is a relationship survey conducted with primarily 9th grade students in two Atlanta-area high schools. The survey is part of the Strengthening Relationship Education and Marriage Services (STREAMS) evaluation conducted by Mathematica Policy Research and its partner, Public Strategies, for the U.S...

The STREAMS evaluation focuses on HMRE programs funded by the Office of Family Assistance within the Administration for Children and Families at DHHS. A more detailed description of the evaluation and survey respondents appears at the end of the brief. To make the tips broadly relevant for students nationwide, the brief also draws on findings from relevant national surveys of adolescents and adults. (Author introduction)

    This cross-site analysis examines all 8 of the exemplary FBCO-TANF partnerships described in the project’s case studies, by drawing out important findings related to volunteer management, organizational infrastructure, inter-agency communication, and place-based strategies. Moreover, the 14-page report articulates some of the leading reasons a TANF agency would want to partner with an FBCO, and it describes how effective partnerships can emerge. (author abstract)
