Project: Data Development Initiatives for Research on Food Assistance and Nutrition Programs
Award Year: 2000
Amount of award, fiscal 2000: $305,933.00
Institution: Urban Institute, Health Systems Research, and Research Triangle Institute, Inc.
Principal Investigator: David Wittenburg
Status: Completed
Detailed Objective: This project explores possibilities for investments in new and improved data resources for research on Federal food assistance and nutrition programs. The project will identify and evaluate 10 feasible initiatives for investments in data resources, and then develop an implementation plan and cost estimates for three selected initiatives.

The initiatives developed under this project will address research and program information needs for the Food Stamp Program, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and child nutrition programs. The initiatives will also be selected for their usefulness for program participation issues and research on the effects of food assistance programs.
