Integrating Data to Strengthen TANF
*Names in bold indicate Presenter
With the help of a federal Social Innovation Fund (SIF) grant and our partners at the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) at the University of Pennsylvania currently supports 15 states and counties in developing the human and technical capacity to link administrative data across agencies for better research and evaluation. AISP’s 18-month training and technical assistance program and peer-to-peer learning community addresses common challenges with partnership building, data governance, legal agreements, secure technology, staffing, and sustainability. On this panel, AISP will share lessons learned from our prior training and field-building work and discuss opportunities to tailor future TDI TA on data sharing and integration to the unique needs of TANF agencies. As part of TDI, AISP will train states on how to integrate data. They will help the project to build a learning community which will encourage peer learning and sharing.
In this presentation, Adelia Jenkins will discuss the innovative approach to data integration and community building that AISP will build on for the TDI project.
