Rockefeller Institute of Government State Capacity Study - Christopher King

Rockefeller Institute of Government State Capacity Study
Principal Investigators: Christopher T. King
Sponsor: Kellogg Foundation
Research Partners: Rockefeller Institute of Government/The Research Foundation of State University of New York
Project Duration: May 2001 – August 2002
Description: Researchers at the Ray Marshall Center provided state analysis and annual updates regarding cash assistance, job training, Medicaid and other social services in Texas.  These reports combined with those of researchers in other states to produce national studies regarding the capacity of state government administrators and program operators to efficiently manage services in an era characterized by the devolution of increased responsibility for human services from the federal government to states and localities. The current analyses concerned recent changes in TANF cash assistance and work programs, which were followed by a study of the design and implementation of the Food Stamp program in Texas.  The studies were conducted under the direction of Richard Nathan at SUNY-Albany through a field network of Rockefeller Institute Associates in selected states.
