Register now for 12/14 webinar on new Administrative Data Pilot competition

The Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality (CPI) and Third Sector Capital Partners invite interested local governments in California, Oregon, and Washington state to apply for services under a federal Social Innovation Fund (SIF) Administrative Data Pilot (ADP) grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service.

At least three local governments conducting outcomes-oriented projects focused on economic opportunity will be selected to receive services under the program. Selected applicants will receive ongoing assistance in linking federal data (U.S. Census, IRS tax data, etc.) with local/state datasets, and technical assistance designed to improve their ability to use data to evaluate program operations and improve decision-making. Local government agencies participating in the SIF Administrative Data Pilot will expand their capacity to access datasets outside of their communities, analyze data to gain actionable insights made possible only by accessing data from state and federal sources, and deploy this knowledge to improve program best-practices and evidence over time. Read more about the SIF ADP on Third Sector’s website here.

Interested city and county governments and other stakeholders are invited to attend an informational webinar scheduled for Wednesday, December 14th at 11:30 AM PST, in advance of the release of the formal application on January 9th.

The webinar will give participants an overview of the Administrative Data Pilot opportunity, including: who is eligible to apply, the types of projects suitable for services, and key dates and milestones for the project, as well as allow participants to ask questions of staff from Third Sector and Stanford. The webinar will be recorded and made available to all parties and posted on the Third Sector website.
