APHSA Annual Report 2018

National Electronic Interstate Compact Enterprise (NEICE) Update The National Electronic Interstate Compact Enterprise (NEICE) raised the bar on data sharing almost five years ago when APHSA and the Association of Administration of the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (AAICPC) received an innovation grant. This grant was awarded to build a data exchange system to enable data about children to be transmitted from one state to another to facilitate a more permanent placement. With support from the Children’s Bureau, by October 2018, there will be twenty-seven states using the NEICE with another ten working through the administrative and technical onboarding process. The NEICE project evaluation has noted the impact on permanency outcomes for approximately 35,000 children by reducing time to placement and increasing accountability in the ICPC process. With a legislative mandate to onboard by 2027, efforts will continue to bring more states onboard over the next year.

Building Effectiveness through Health and Well-Being ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS APHSA’s Human Services Integration Institute, funded through a grant from the Kresge Foundation, ended during the first half of 2018. The purpose of this virtual institute was to build capacity within organizations and community teams by positioning them to initiate, implement and monitor an integration change plan. APHSA’s Organizational Effectiveness team provided facilitation and change management support to advance this purpose in each of the four jurisdictions. The association is supporting six North Star Convenings that Kresge is hosting with its human services grantees. These convenings will bring a collective group of leaders who share our commitment to advancing social and economic mobility. The first convening will focus on lifting racial equity in human services.
