SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Description: The proposed information collection activity is the 
first phase of a larger study that intends to assess the impact and 
implementation of LifeSet, a program that provides services and 
supports to young adults ages 17 to 21 with previous child welfare 
involvement. The program aims to support young adults in their 
transition from foster care to independent living in the areas of 
education, employment and earnings, housing and economic well-being, 
social support, well-being, health and safety, and criminal 
involvement. It focuses on helping young adults identify and achieve 
their goals while developing the skills necessary for independent 
living.
    The impact study will assess the effects of young adults' 
participation in LifeSet on outcomes in the primary (i.e. confirmatory) 
domains of education and employment, housing stability, social support, 
and well-being. These outcomes have been identified by the implementing 
agency as the main areas they expect to target for positive program 
impacts. In addition, the impact study will explore the effects of 
participation in the secondary (i.e. exploratory) domains of mental 
health, criminal justice system contact, intimate partner violence, and

of corrections, the state juvenile justice commission, the state court 
probation services division, and the state department of human services 
division of family development, as well as survey interviews with 
program participants and young adults receiving services as usual.
    The implementation study will collect information through phone
