IMPORTANT UPDATE! The RECS 2020 Planning Committee has been closely monitoring the situation related to COVID-19. ACF’s Research and Evaluation Conference on Self-Sufficiency will not be held on May 27-29, 2020. We are exploring alternate options at this time and will provide updates via our website and email list. The wellness of our speakers, participants, and staff is our highest priority. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your continued support of RECS.

Since 1998, the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has convened the Research and Evaluation Conference on Self-Sufficiency (RECS) to present the latest findings from evaluations of programs, policies, and services that support low-income and vulnerable families on the path to economic self-sufficiency. For nearly 20 years, the RECS has been a leading forum for researchers, State and local administrators, practitioners, and Federal officials and policymakers to discuss cutting-edge research on family self-sufficiency and social welfare programs and policies. RECS 2020 provides an opportunity to hear the latest findings from evaluations of human services and employment programs and policies, discuss ways to incorporate findings into the design and implementation of programs, and identify future evaluation needs.
