Supplemental funding to the existing ETAC is a cost effective and efficient solution that will leverage RAND Corporation’s currently funded infrastructure to include the additional sites funded under HRSA–17–047. Further, this supplemental funding will leverage RAND’s current work by combining and comparing evaluation results across all jurisdictions from both initiatives and facilitate the streamlining and integration of processes and technical assistance. Supplemental funding will also provide opportunities for RAND Corporation to create joint learning networks and build on lessons learned from the initial cohort of jurisdictional sites currently in the second year of implementation.
