Impact of the Initiative: Evaluation
As the IDA Initiative works to respond to continued wealth inequality and racial wealth divides, it seeks to maintain a program that is transparent and data informed. In its role as contract administrator, Neighborhood Partnerships uses multiple methods of collecting and using data to inform the IDA Initiative’s program design and promote accountability. We use a blend of quantitative and qualitative data to comprehensively understand IDA performance and equity outcomes. As one method for including participant voices in our analysis, we send surveys to all participants requesting feedback on IDA program experience, barriers, and impact.
