Participant Research Innovation Laboratory (PRIL) for Enhancing Customer Service in WIC Services


Summary

The focus of this award is the implementation and evaluation of solutions to the problem of declining rates of retention of children ages 1-4 in the WIC program. Through the cooperative agreement, the Hopkins Participant Research Innovation Laboratory (HPRIL) for Enhancing Customer Service in WIC Services is funding, supporting and evaluating 3-5 state or local WIC agency-initiated projects that use existing innovative and replicable interactive tools and technology to improve program retention of children from age 1 to 4 years. It is expected that the strategies designed through HPRIL funding will be replicable in other local agencies and clinics. State and local WIC agencies will utilize their WIC management information system (MIS) to evaluate their projects, and HPRIL will work with grantees to guide the project refinement s and evaluation plans so that they can be rigorously evaluated individually and across projects.
