2016 CYFAR Evaluation Report

In 2017, the Children, Youth, and Families At-Risk Initiative (CYFAR) celebrated its 25th Anniversary. CYFAR provides funding for local Sustainable Community Projects (SCPs) that promote positive outcomes among vulnerable populations throughout the United States and Territories. CYFAR also funds the CYFAR Professional Development and Technical Assistance (CYFAR PDTA) Center, which provides professional development, technical assistance, and evaluation support for CYFAR SCPs. Evaluations of CYFAR SCPs began in 2010 as a pilot program, followed by a mandate that all SCPs collect common measures data starting in 2014. This report was developed to provide an update on the status of the data collection effort, data-based analysis and findings related to outcomes, and recommendations for adaptations to the cross-site evaluation process.
