Innovative Practices Award
The Innovative Practices Award is presented by the Council on Accreditation (COA) to COA-accredited and in-process organizations that demonstrate, through the submission of a case study, the application of new and forward-looking practices that have raised the quality of services provided to vulnerable children and families, and are consistent with theory, practice wisdom, and expert consensus as reflected in the broader literature. The Innovative Practices Award provides the opportunity for organizations to share and be rewarded for uniquely meeting the needs of a service population and/or implementing distinctive methods for improving organizational capacity.
