Using methods of economic evaluation developed for RWJF to assess the Covering Kids & Families initiative

This grant will support the second phase of a Return on the Future (RFF) project by using procedures developed in Phase 1 to conduct an economic evaluation of the RWJF program Covering Kids & Families (CKF). The Foundation has a long history of supporting rigorous, unbiased evaluations of its programs, but it generally has not assessed their long-term economic impact. Under the first phase of this project, RFF developed methods and a new analytic approach to measure the economic returns on RWJF's programming. The second phase will support a full analysis that uses those methods and applies them to CKF.
