HHS Opens $12M Competition for Training, Foster Care Effort

Agency: Health & Human Services Dept. (Admin. for Children & Families); Program: National Training and Development Initiative for Foster/Adoptive Parents (CFDA Number: 93.652) (Funding Opportunity Number: HHS-2017-ACF-ACYF-CO-1266); Eligibility: Governments, universities, public housing authorities, nonprofits and for-profits; Funding: $1 million for one award (matching not required); Deadline: July 10.

Summary: Funding supports one center to develop a state-of-the-art foster/adoptive parent training program. The parent training program must include intensive preparation and development components that reflect the capacities required of successful foster/adoptive parents. This is intended to be a product that could be utilized free of charge. Preparation services benefit the adoptive placement by strengthening the caregivers understanding of the unique needs of the child and developing their own capacities. It is anticipated that initial year funding ceiling will be $1 million and each subsequent year funding ceiling will be $2 million.
