PRA’s focus on education revolves around building the supports that students need to succeed in school. We believe that children with behavioral health needs are better served when they are living at home, attending school, and are engaging in the necessary treatment and support services required to help them succeed. We work with schools to build collaborative partnerships with behavioral health providers and families to ensure that children are receiving the right supports at the right time.

PROJECTS

This project is designed to develop a suite of stakeholder-informed resources to support the integration of youth engagement strategies in federal agencies and federally funded programs.


This project aims to improve life opportunities for youth by advancing policy and practice improvements that ensure the well-being of youth, families, and communities.


This program, operated by PRA’s sister firm Policy Research, Inc., provided a one-year $10,000 stipend to graduate students to conduct research on improving the Disability Determination Process for the Social Security Administration’s two disability programs.


The Analyzing Relationships between Disability, Rehabilitation and Work (ARDRAW) Small Grant Program is a one-year $10,000 stipend program awarded to graduate-level students to conduct supervised independent research designed to foster new analysis of work, rehabilitation, and disability issues.


Policy Research, Inc. operated SAMHSA’s Statewide Family and Consumer Networks (FCN) TA Center from 2009-2014. The FCN TA Center provided TA and support to grantees of the Statewide Family and Consumer Networks grant programs (SFN/SCN). Grantees of each program received three-year grants from SAMHSA to develop the infrastructure and business models needed to serve as their state’s resource and advocacy organization for families and their children (SFN) and for adults (SCN) with mental illness.


In 2009, PRA was awarded the ASPE’s Homeless Children’s Roundtable project. PRA worked with ASPE and three subject matter experts to: (1) produce background papers that reviewed the research on homeless children and described key federal legislation related to homeless children and the range of federal services available to them; (2) convene a roundtable of researchers, policy experts, practitioners, and federal staff that discussed, assessed, and strategized how to improve services and long-term outcomes for children who experience homelessness; and (3) summarize the proceedings of the roundtable so that ASPE staff could create a series of issue briefs.
