Why is this study being conducted?

The goals of the Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income PROMISE demonstration programs are to improve the provision and coordination of services and supports for youth Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients and their families. Ultimately, the programs aim to improve educational attainment, employment, and other outcomes for SSI youth and their families. The national evaluation will assess how the programs are implemented and whether these goals are achieved.
