This report presents the results of an assessment of research needs related to human services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people. The assessment aimed to determine what is known about low-income and at-risk LGBT people and their interactions with human services, especially services funded by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and identify important topics for further research in this area. Mathematic Policy Research and its subcontractor, the Williams Institute, conducted the assessment for ACF. (Author abstract)
