The presentation describes application of the Behavioral Interventions to Advance Self-Sufficiency (BIAS) methodology -- applying behavioral economics to human services policies and programs - to improve child support program response by incarcerated non-custodial parents. The presenters described concrete changes made to the Texas Office of Attorney General's notification process (incl. design changes to the letter and application, more clear wording, and additional notices) and resulting differences in child support modification applications and awards.

This presentation was given at the 2013 National Association of Welfare Research and Statistics (NAWRS) Annual Workshop.
