The Fatherhood Research and Practice Network (FRPN) plans to issue up to 12, $10,000 grants to support state planning projects to develop, augment or sustain initiatives to promote father inclusion in policies and practices in state agencies, departments and programs that serve families.
Awards will be made to a single administering agency such as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, a state or local government agency, a public or private university or a research organization. We will accept applications (one per state) on a rolling basis through December 31, 2018.
Planning groups must include the State Child Support (IV-D) director or his/her designee, a researcher with a focus on fatherhood or family policy and at least one other high-level state official.
