Policy & Practice

The NAACFRC prioritizes the needs and experiences of practitioners to promote access, equity, inclusion, and participation of families served by TANF, Head Start, and Child Care Assistance. Our fourth research priority is to identify and assess promising approaches for service provision to African American children. Activities under this priority include:

  • Assessing program efforts to promote access, equity, inclusion, & support
  • Assessing the feasibility of implementation of current ACF promising approaches
  • Conducting semi-structured interviews with program leaders & recipients to identify the components of promising approaches
  • Analyzing existing datasets for individual-, community-level, & geo-variables using statistical modeling or clustering analysis
