Reorganization of Social Policy

Since the early 1990s, three developments have reorganized the practice of social policy for low-income Americans. Devolution has shifted policy authority downward from the federal government to state and local actors. Privatization has expanded the diversity of policy-relevant organizations and the variety of ways that relationships across organizations and programs are structured. Performance management has produced a new emphasis on program outputs and new systems of performance feedback and reward.
