Non-Custodial Parent Choices Establishment and PEER Pilots: Preliminary Impact Report

Authors: Daniel Schroeder, Amna Khan
Date: May 2011
Publication Type: Report. 70pp.
This report describes the early impacts of two pilot programs: NCP Choices-EP and PEER pilots. NCP Choices-EP program assists low-income NCPs earlier in their case histories, before they have a chance to get behind on their child support payments and accumulate significant child support debt. The PEER pilot tests whether the addition of a curriculum that includes parenting and relationship skills and financial literacy to the workforce development services can measurably enhance the program's impacts on the ability of low-income NCPs to support their children.
