This brief highlights the Family Self-Sufficiency and Stability Research Consortium’s individual and collective efforts to improve the lives of low-income families and children by integrating research, policy, and practice on family self-sufficiency and stability. The consortium consists of three parts: (1) the Advancing Welfare and Family Self-Sufficiency Research project, led by Mathematica Policy Research; (2) the Scholars Network, a multidisciplinary collaborative of seven university-based scholars; and (3) the Data Center, which provides technical support to states on high quality data management, linkage, and analysis.
