ACF Human Services Interoperability Innovations Demonstration Program

The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces the availability of funds for the ACF Human Services Interoperability Innovations demonstration program.

This demonstration program is intended to expand data-sharing efforts by state, local, and tribal governments to improve human services program delivery and to identify novel data-sharing approaches that can be replicated in other jurisdictions. The grants will focus on addressing longstanding barriers to interoperability, including technology, business, legal, organizational, and process-oriented factors. The results will be disseminated to inform future efforts and to facilitate the replication of promising practices.

A total of $1.2 million is available under this program, which is anticipated to support between two and four grant awards. To learn more and/or to apply, please visit this ACF webpage. The applications are due on August 8, 2019.

ACF is also seeking qualified reviewers to assist with the peer review process; financial compensation is available. Interested candidates should contact DataRx@acf.hhs.gov.
