Grant Funding Opportunity Available to Evaluate Fatherhood Programs

The Fatherhood Research & Practice Network (FRPN) is seeking proposals from teams of researchers and fatherhood programs to evaluate fatherhood services. The FRPN is a five-year national project that funds the evaluation of fatherhood programs working with low-income populations and offers a wealth of training and technical assistance to improve fatherhood practice and evaluation research. Evaluation studies help strengthen fatherhood programs and boost their potential for future funding.  

This grant funding opportunity is designed for:
Evaluations of fatherhood services designed to promote economic stability, effective parenting or
co-parenting with fathers and/or improve effective practice.
Studies of innovative approaches to recruit, engage and retain fathers for services or fathers and mothers for co-parenting services.
Studies that focus on low-income, never-married and nonresident fathers.
Studies that use rigorous evaluation designs (randomized controlled trials or strong quasi-experimental), replication studies or exploratory studies that systematically examine innovative approaches.

Eligible applicants include:
Teams of researchers and established fatherhood programs that have a strong track record in recruitment, retention and low attrition of fathers.
Programs with and without funding from the Administration for Children and Families, Office
of Family Assistance.
Programs based in many places (community-based organizations, courts, agencies, schools),
but no prisons or other institutional settings.
Teams willing to limit their administrative overhead or indirect costs to 15%.

Next steps:
Download the FRPN request for proposals here.
Submit a three-page letter of interest by February 5, 2016. 
Funded projects begin July 1, 2016 and last up to 24 months. The FRPN will distribute approximately 2-4
awards of $50,000 and 4-5 awards of $100,000.
