The Partnership Fund is committed to engaging a diverse spectrum of stakeholders as we seek to bridge silos and improve the efficiency, delivery, and integrity of federally-funded assistance programs. From suggesting ideas to developing innovative pilot concepts for funding consideration, there are many opportunities for anyone – federal, state, local, and tribal governments; nonprofit and advocacy organizations; private industry groups; academics; beneficiaries; and members of the general public – to add their voice to the Partnership Fund’s work.

Participate in the Collaborative Forum

Participating in the Collaborative Forum is your opportunity to help drive innovations in the delivery of government programs to achieve better, more cost effective results.

The Collaborative Forum draws on state, local, tribal and other stakeholder expertise to generate, develop, and consult on potential pilot projects to test innovations in how states administer federally funded assistance programs. Membership consists of state representatives, who convene work groups to further grow or improve promising pilot ideas so that they can be considered for funding. Non-state stakeholders— including federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and others able to contribute expertise—participate in the Collaborative Forum through these work groups and help to refine ideas into relevant, feasible, and truly innovative pilot concepts. Potential pilots are considered for funding by the Partnership Fund for Program Integrity Innovation.
