    Reference Type: Report
    Year: 2017

    This report examines the overlap in eligibility of children and nonelderly adults for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Medicaid/Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) benefits in 2013, prior to Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. We find that over half of children eligible for one program were eligible for both, and nearly all of the remaining children were eligible for Medicaid/CHIP. A substantially smaller share of parents and nonparents were eligible for both SNAP and Medicaid/CHIP. The report also provides state-level estimates to allow calculation of state joint program participation rates. (Author abstract)

    Year: 2017

    This report explores how public housing authorities (PHAs) granted Moving to Work (MTW) status by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) use their unique policy and fiscal flexibility to help low-income households move to opportunity-rich neighborhoods. Policy and programs adopted through MTW include changes to the tenant-based Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program or policies that increase the affordable housing supply in opportunity neighborhoods through the project-based voucher (PBV) program. We draw from an extensive review of publicly available MTW agency plans and reports that document each PHA’s initiatives. (Author abstract)

    Reference Type: Report
    Year: 2017

    This fact sheet provides an overview of the first phase of the Accomplishments of the Domestic Violence Hotline, Online Connections and Text (ADVHOCaT) project.

    The objective of the first phase is to describe the activities and immediate outcomes of the National Domestic Violence Hotline (The Hotline) and loveisrespect help line (LIR) and to revise or develop new performance measures.

    This fact sheet presents initial findings related to the following questions:

    1. What services and resources do The Hotline/LIR provide to contactors (i.e., those who contact The Hotline and LIR, including victims/survivors, friends and family, service providers, and batterers/abusers?)

    2. Do contactors receive the information and assistance they need and/or seek?

    3. Do contactors view the information and assistance as helpful?

    4. What are the trends and patterns in the various modes of service and which modes of service do contactors prefer?

    It also describes next steps for data collection and analyses. (Author abstract)
