2020 Eligibility Criteria
This section outlines the measurement results that will be collected by Leader and transferred to Financial Health Network.* Both the Financial Health Network and Leader will be responsible for providing the financial and personnel resources needed to execute the tasks outlined in this document.
Data Sharing Policy
The Leader will only share anonymized results with Financial Health Network. Prior to transferring data to Financial Health Network, the Leader will remove any PII from data. Financial Health Network neither requests nor accepts responsibility for receipt of any PII. Financial Health Network may aggregate data of multiple Leaders in order to present broad learnings, but prior to Financial Health Network sharing any data externally that is specific to Leader, Leader will have the opportunity to review and approve the use of their data.
