The Administration for Children and Families released a new 2023 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Prevention Services Evaluation Partnerships: Building Evidence for Mental Health, Substance Use, In-home Parent Skill-based, and Kinship Navigator Programs and Services.

The three-year grants will support evaluations of “programs and services intended to provide enhanced support to children and families, including pregnant and parenting youth in foster care, as well as prevent child abuse and neglect and foster care placements. ACF is particularly interested in evaluations of programs and services designed for or that have been adapted for specific cultural, ethnic, or racial groups, or programs and services that aim to serve populations that have been historically marginalized and/or have historic or ongoing disproportionate representation in the child welfare system.”
