Family Advocacy Program – Economic Assessment

Partnership/Type: Army
Status: Completed Project

The ACS FAP provides services and personnel to prevent and treat child maltreatment (CM) and intimate partner violence (IPV). Within this report, the Clearinghouse considers the economic relevance of ACS FAP with regard to the costs of negative outcomes and the potential economic return if ACS FAP was found to reduce family violence. The overall costs of ACS FAP were examined relative to the potential economic benefits that would be associated with true population-level change due to program impact. If future evaluation demonstrated that ACS FAP is effective in positively impacting its targeted outcomes, a clear case could be made for the continued and priority funding given the potential realized by a positive ROI for the Army and society at large.
