Start Preamble

Title: Evaluation of the Community Healthy Marriage Initiative.

OMB No.: No collection.

Description: The administration for Children and Families, United States Department of Health and Human Services, is conducting a demonstration and evaluation called Community Healthy Marriage Initiative (CHMI). Demonstration programs will be funded to support healthy marriage directly as well as encourage community changes in norms that increase support for healthy marriages and improve child and family well-being. The objective of the impact evaluation is to evaluate the community effects of these interventions on marital stability and satisfaction and child and family well-being outcomes among low-income families. Primary data for the impact evaluation will come from three waves of in-person data collection. This collection is a baseline survey of community members where CHMI demonstrations are operating, the first of three CMI surveys. The impact evaluation will assess the effects of community healthy marriage initiatives by comparing family and child well-being outcomes in the CHMI communities with similar outcomes in comparison communities that are well matched to the demonstration project sites.

Respondents: Community members aged 18-49 in three study sites and three comparison communities.
