Description: A new funding program is proposed to accelerate the testing, evaluation, and implementation of innovative approaches to human services interoperability and data sharing. Funding would support local or state pilot projects to identify effective and efficient solutions, and develop model practices for broader adoption. The goal is to provide agencies with resources and technical support to experiment and innovate, particularly in challenge areas previously identified by the states through the ACF regional meeting and ReImagine HHS initiatives. OPRE technical assistance will also be provided to grantees to help document outcomes and promote replication. Providing agencies with financial incentives and directed assistance, even moderate in scope, can often have an outsized impact on efforts to strengthen and modernize service delivery.
