Purpose and Request:

title

Request by Budget Management for approval of a data sharing agreement with the University of Notre Dame to allow its Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO) to obtain the County’s data related to the CARES Direct Assistance Program to assess the impact of financial assistance on the housing stability and financial stability of recipients.

Background and Discussion:

Harris County established a $61.4 million Direct Assistance Program using CARES funding. LEO will compare outcomes for those who were randomly selected to receive funds against outcomes for those who were not selected to receive funds. This research can provide critical guidance to policymakers and funders about how to best support residents and has the potential to inform future rounds of emergency funding.

 

Fiscal Impact:

Besides some minor administrative task performed by County employees on the project, there is no fiscal impact.
