Pregnancy Assistance Fund (PAF) Evaluation Study
The Pregnancy Assistance Fund (PAF) Evaluation evaluates programs for expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers and their families. Started in 2013, the evaluation is comprised of two components: 1) a broad, descriptive study documenting the design and implementation across the 17 FY2014 Pregnancy Assistance Fund Program grantees and 2) rigorous implementation and impact studies of three programs for expectant and parenting youth and their families. Two programs are being evaluated with randomized controlled trials collecting individual-level survey data and the third program is being evaluated through a state of the art of quasi-experimental design. The contractor is Mathematica Policy Research.
