Funding Opportunity to Evaluate Fatherhood Programs
Last month, the Fatherhood Research and Practice Network (FRPN) – www.frpn.org – launched to promote rigorous evaluation of fatherhood programs serving low-income fathers.
Over the next three years, the FRPN will award grants to projects evaluating fatherhood programs. The purpose of these grants is to increase the number and quality of evaluations of fatherhood programs and learn more about how to better serve low-income fathers, racial/ethnic minorities and other under studied populations. $300,000 is available in the first round of FRPN funding. The FRPN expects to make approximately three awards of $50,000 and one to two awards in the $100,000 – $150,000 range.
The deadline to submit letters of interest in applying for FRPN funding is rapidly approaching. Letters of interest are due by July 30, 2014.

If you are looking for a researcher or practitioner to collaborate with in applying for FRPN funding, please contact Rebecca Kaufman, FRPN project coordinator, at Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, the FRPN Researcher & Practitioner Forum, accessible from the FRPN homepage, is another way to connect with fatherhood researchers and practitioners.
