The focus of this report is the Non-Custodial Parent Choices PEER curriculum enhancement pilot. The PEER pilot, which began in late 2010 in Hidalgo County, El Paso, and Beaumont/Port Arthur, tests whether the addition of a curriculum including parenting and relationship skills and financial literacy to the standard workforce development services in the original program can measurably enhance the program's impacts on the ability of low-income non-custodial parents (NCPs) to support their children. This report describes the early impacts of this pilot, which has thus far shown success in increasing child support collections.
