Program Delivery Innovation During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges (and new opportunities for innovation) for public benefit programs across the United States. In this talk, teammates from ideas42’s Economic Justice focus area will discuss projects in partnership with two state agencies that administer the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (better known as WIC). WIC provides food, breastfeeding support, nutritional counseling, and education to families with children under age 5 who face economic hardship. Through our work in WIC, we will explore important insights to consider when developing and implementing a new innovative approach during the pandemic and beyond. While these insights are most relevant for program administrators, they are also useful for anyone innovating in human service delivery more broadly.
