This brief presents early findings on the implementation of SET case management, from the program’s start in July 2013 through April 2015. Our assessment draws on data from the program’s management information system (MIS), site visits, calls with providers, and case study interviews with 12 participants. Because the program is still ongoing as of September 2015, the qualitative findings in this brief are preliminary and based on a partial sample of program participants. The study’s final report in 2018 will include data from a follow-up survey with the full sample of participants, causal results from the impact assessment of the program, and updated implementation results.
