Thus it is an opportune time to take stock of the lessons learned by federal agencies in order to inform the next generation of PFS projects that will be implemented by states and localities participating in federal PFS programs. The roundtable focus fits perfectly the conference theme, Evidence for Action: Encouraging Innovation and Improvement, as the PFS model is premised on using evidence for innovation and improvement, and this roundtable would use recent evidence and lessons from PFS to inform future innovation and improvement.
The roundtable will consist of key senior staff experts in PFS – variously engaged in policy analysis and development, program design and implementation, and research and evaluation - at the Executive Office of the President, and the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Education, USAID, and the Corporation for National and Community Service. The specific projects to be discussed span housing, homelessness, recidivism, employment, education and early child development, organizational capacity-building, and international development. A similar roundtable was held at the Fall 2016 APPAM conference, and generated considerable attendance and interest. Given the rapid development of the PFS field, much has happened and been learned since then, such that the proposed roundtable will be fresh and timely.
