Urban announces third competition for pay for success administrative data technical assistance

January 16, 2019 - 10:43am

The Urban Institute is pleased to announce it is releasing a new Notice of Service Availability (NoSA) to select up to four additional sites to receive pro bono technical assistance through the Pay for Success – Administrative Data (PFS-AD) program. The PFS-AD program is supported by a grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). Through this program, the Urban Institute is currently supporting technical assistance engagements with Clinica Esperanza/Hope Clinic in Providence, Rhode Island; the Thomas Jefferson Area Coalition for the Homeless in Charlottesville, Virginia; the Yakima Valley Conference of Governments in Yakima, Washington; and the Connecticut Health and Education Finance Authority in Connecticut.

Selected applicants will receive between 6-9 months of technical assistance around administrative data challenges associated with developing, launching, or implementing their projects. The technical assistance provided by Urban Institute can address a range of data-related challenges including identifying and connecting to data resources, launching data sharing agreements, securely exchanging data, linking and cleaning administrative data, and analyzing data to identify target populations.

If you or anyone you know is interested in this type of technical assistance, then we encourage you to check out our NoSA and streamlined application process available below. We will select sites on a rolling basis and encourage interested sites to apply early. Priority will be given to those sites that have identified specific challenges that could benefit from technical assistance and are able to begin working with Urban immediately. Eligible applicants may be from across the US, and must be a nonprofit organization, public or nonprofit university, state or local government, tribe, or a faith-based organization. For more information about the upcoming application process, please contact Bbieretz@urban.org.  

*Update on 3/28/2019: This NoSA is now closed.
