Family Connection Grants: Comprehensive Residential Family Treatment Projects

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications for Comprehensive Residential Family Treatment Projects that will expand the availability of comprehensive, residential treatment services for parents and their minor children, including services for non-residential

family members.

This family-centered service approach will address the complex, multiple needs of the target population of families with children at risk of entering or re-entering foster care.

The target population will include women, their minor children, fathers of the children, partners of the women, and the extended family members of the women and children, as appropriate.

Projects will provide services strategically to stabilize, strengthen, preserve and reunite families.

As prescribed by the authorizing legislation, Residential Family Treatment projects funded under this announcement shall:
Enable parents and their children to live in a safe environment for a period of not less than 6 months; Provide, on site or by referral, substance abuse treatment services, children's early intervention services, family counseling, medical, and mental health services, nursery and pre-school and other services that are designed to provide comprehensive treatment that supports the family.

Projects may initiate comprehensive residential family treatment programs with the target population or may expand, bring to scale or integrate existing programs of this type which serve this population.

Services provided should be trauma-informed and should be driven by a comprehensive trauma-informed assessment.

Assessments and interventions will consider the individual's adverse life experiences within the context of their culture, history, and exposure to traumatic events.

Grantees are required to meet a non-Federal share of the total approved project costs, in accordance with Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 200 8. Grantees must provide at least 25 percent of the total approved cost of the project for the first two years of the project period, and 50 percent of the total approved cost of the project in the third year of the project period.

The total approved cost of the project is the sum of the ACF Federal share and the non-Federal share.

The non-Federal share may be met by cash or in-kind contributions.

No more than 50 percent of the non-Federal share may be made up of in-kind contributions.
