Description: 

The grants under this partner announcement will be awarded to explore potential relevance and application of behavioral principles to child support services. BICS grantees will test behaviorally-informed interventions focused on areas such as modification, right-sizing orders, family-centered services, and other service-focused innovations. This cooperative agreement will allow the selected state agency to use this federal grant award and the Federal Financial Participation associated with Section 1115 grant funds to procure and manage technical assistance and evaluation of the BICS grantees through an independent third-party evaluator (i.e., a university or research firm). The selected evaluator will work through the child support processes of each grantee and identify ways to improve, and evaluate the process interventions and outcomes of each intervention.
