Proposal to build Financial Stability Metrics for the United Way Proposal to build Financial Stability Metrics for the United Way Presentation Transcript

  • Financial Stability Metrics: When Making a Difference Counts The United Way Financial Stability Program Presentation for the Annie E. Casey Foundation January 7, 2008
    • Shared Objectives:
    • Facilitating Asset Building and Wealth Creation
    • Equitable and Sustainable Economic Development
    • Shared Approaches:
    • Outcomes Driven Programs
    • Commitment to Measurable Results
    • Creative Solutions
    • Shared Constituents:
    • Thin- and No-File, Unbanked, and Credit Underserved
    • Disadvantaged and Low Income Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners
    Why are we here?
    • Problem: how to quantify the real effect of financial stability and development projects on people and places
      • What are appropriate measures?
      • What is the appropriate time-frame?
      • What are the relevant benchmarks and control groups? (how many variables can be taken account of?)
    The Need
    • Evaluate the impact of United Way financial stability programs in 3 Locals (Forsythe County, Central Ohio, and Central Indiana):
      • Track the changes in the credit and financial profiles of participants
      • Benchmark performance against randomly selected individuals who are geographically and socio-demographically “close”—and to the extent that some who apply don’t join the program, serve as randomized trials (akin to procedures suggested by Poverty Action Lab)
    Proposed Solution
    • Developing metrics for evaluation financial stability projects (with United Way):
    • Enable the specification of outcomes through data comparisons with control groups;
    • Allow for a more accurate identification of individuals in need;
    • Permit faster and more accurate monitoring of progress in financial stability projects;
    • Helps allocate resources better;
    • Provide mid-project assessments of any need for additional interventions; and,
    • Identify differential program impacts on varying socio-demographic segments, better target clients.
    How this Helps United Way Locals
    • In short, a successful dashboard will result in better quality service for more people in United Way communities.
    How this helps UW Locals?
