Office Hours Webinar Series

Decorative image of chairsMCH Evidence staff present the archives for our 2020 office hours series, which was developed for those who want last-minute assistance in reviewing and selecting evidence-based/informed strategies and programs that address priorities, completing state action plans, and developing strong ESMs. The archive of these office hours serve as an informal space where our implementation experts provide tools, encourage peer-to-peer sharing, and answer questions about effective strategies that are based on the evidence and are measurable through Results-Based Accountability (RBA).

Center staff shared the evidence of “what works” through our recent NPM evidence webinar series; this series focuses on “how to choose and measure what works.”

The three office hour sessions are based on where you might be in the process. No matter where you are on the continuum with your Block Grant report and application, we are here to support you with ideas, tools, and the chance to hear innovative ideas from your colleagues. Please contact us if you'd like additional assistance with your ESMs.
