Centers to target and integrate services within four main pillars: 
Economic empowerment, educational advancement, health and wellness, and 
character and leadership. In June 2018, HUD designated 18 EnVision 
Centers as part of the initiative's first cohort of designations and 
has since expanded the initiative with three additional cohorts--a 
total of over 40 designated EnVision Centers. This new and rapidly 
growing initiative creates a critical need to gain an in-depth 
understanding from local stakeholders of implementation efforts to 
date, which will help develop and guide the initiative while 
establishing a framework of knowledge for future program monitoring and 
evaluation efforts. The evaluation team will collect data from sites 
using qualitative, semi-structured interviews with four groups of key 
local stakeholders: Site leadership, front line staff, participants, 
and representatives from organizations (partners) that provide services 
and resources to the EnVision Center. The interviews will primarily 
seek to understand how communities selected and established their 
center, the process for centralized intake and participant level data 
collection, and how new partnerships and services have developed since 
the center's designation. Through an Inter-Agency Agreement (IAA), the
