Human Services Interoperability Innovations – US
The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces the availability of funds for the ACF Human Services Interoperability Innovations demonstration program to expand data sharing efforts by state, local, and tribal governments to improve human services program delivery and to identify novel data-sharing approaches that can be replicated in other jurisdictions.
This cooperative agreement will focus on addressing longstanding barriers to interoperability, including technology, business, legal, organizational, and process-oriented factors. Results will be disseminated to inform future efforts and facilitate replication of promising practices.
Applicants must include a description of a specific, local interoperability data need or issue that will be addressed by the funded activities.
Explain how the stated need or issue impacts health and human services for children and families with low income.
This problem statement must clearly convey the applicant’s understanding of the problem, root causes, contributing and contextual factors, and consequences to human services operations or administration if the problem is not addressed.
The interoperability components of the problem should be clearly identified, operationally defined, and measurable.
