Webinar #3: Information, Family Outcomes, Reporting, and Management (nFORM): A Tool for Data Management and Reporting This webinar discusses an exciting new Management Information System designed specifically for Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood/ReFORM grantees.

Webinar #4: Local Evaluation: Answering Key Questions This webinar discusses the expectation for local evaluations or grantee evaluation of a specific research question of interest. This exciting new feature of the Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood/ReFORM grants allows grantees the opportunity to explore a research question in-depth, to inform both grantee operations and the knowledge base for the entire field. The webinar was originally held on Thursday, May 28.

Webinar #5: Federal Evaluations for Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Marriage Grantees This webinar discusses two new federally-led evaluations of a small number of Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood/ReFORM grantees. The evaluation of the small set of Responsible Fatherhood/ReFORM grantees is called “Building Bridges and Bonds (B3).” The evaluation of the small set of Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education grantees is called “Strengthening Relationship Education and Marriage Services (STREAMS).” The federally-led evaluation studies will be:

  • Rigorous, multisite studies testing innovative services offered by Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Marriage programs
  • Unique opportunities for the program and research communities to together produce new evidence about specific service approaches
  • Sources of financial and technical program assistance to support enhanced services and/or to grow service capacities
  • Opportunities for increased visibility within the field

The webinar was originally held on Friday, May 29.
