The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is soliciting applications for the establishment of a Responsible Fatherhood Research Network.
A lead entity that receives the award will oversee a multi-year plan that aims to disseminate information about good fatherhood parenting practices
by building research and practice knowledge and capacity; leading and supporting further development and evaluation of evidence- or theory-based interventions to increase positive father involvement in the lives of their children; and increasing collaboration, knowledge sharing, and capacity building among investigators and practitioners.
The Network will be expected to have a primary focus on economically disadvantaged fathers and families and other under studied population groups.
The Network also will be expected to develop and disseminate research products and resources to facilitate knowledge sharing among multi-disciplinary researchers and among investigators, practitioners, program officials and policymakers.
