Our Research

The FRPN's efforts are focused on three areas: responsible fatherhood, economic security and coparenting/healthy relationships. We will fund projects that support rigorous evaluation research being conducted on fatherhood programs and services within these areas. To help guide this process, the FRPN workgroups have completed research reports that outline research gaps and opportunities for future evaluation. These reports can be downloaded below.

As evaluation research is conducted by FRPN grantees, workgroups and the project team, their findings will also be added to this section of the website.
