The Foundation's Cash & Counseling program was designed to allow elderly and disabled Medicaid consumers the opportunity to manage cash allowances in lieu of receiving traditional agency-delivered supportive services. This grant supports the procurement of a subcontractor to conduct an evaluation of the demonstration projects designed and implemented by the two grantee states (Massachusetts and Maryland) under the first program component. The evaluation contractor will develop an overall research design and work plan in conjunction with program officials in each of the participating demonstration states. The research strategy will include: (1) a rationale for the basic research strategy; (2) the relationship between the key design elements and the objectives of the study; (3) an approach to sampling issues, sources of data, data collection plans and procedures; and (4) plans for data analysis.
