2011 Annual Report

Impact of ODDC Programs on the Quality of Life for Beneficiaries

The Council began funding model demonstration projects more than 30 years ago. Oklahoma State University conducted an in-depth case study of a select group of former Council-funded projects, as a follow-up to a full longitudinal study of all previously-funded Council projects. This targeted secondary evaluation seeks to gain a data-rich understanding of the impact Council funding has had on the quality of life for beneficiaries served by these funded projects.
