Nonresident Fathers Research Project Seeking Agency Involvement

10/24/2007:   Looking for funding to support research on engaging nonresident fathers in children's lives? American Humane and its partners are accepting Requests for Applications through November 27 from child welfare agencies who wish to participate in the National Quality Improvement Center for Nonresident Fathers and the Child Welfare System Project.

The five-year project will determine through rigorous experimental research the impact of nonresident father involvement on child safety, permanence, and well-being. Awards granted to four lead child welfare agencies will focus specifically on the child welfare system's contact and engagement of nonresident fathers, with attention to the collaboration between courts, community systems, fatherhood program providers, nonresident fathers, and paternal kin. Each award will total about $500,000. Projects will begin in January 2008.

The QIC NRF is funded by the U.S. Children's Bureau. American Humane's partners in the project are the American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law and the National Fatherhood Initiative.
