WHY did it need a Next Generation?
There are two components of ROMA – management and accountability.
Unfortunately many agencies focus on the latter rather than the former. ROMA NG is not anything; it is just a revival of the former. Additionally, the ROMA NG project is helping Community Action to re-evaluate what is success and how we will measure this aka why the performance indicators are being updated. RPICs play a key role in helping ensure agency input is obtained aka a bridge between the local and national levels, dissemination of pertinent information, and provide training/technical assistance to aid agencies with ROMA Next Generation.
