The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) plans to award a cooperative agreement to operate Research Connections.
Research Connections is a web-based, interactive database of research documents and public use data sets for conducting secondary analyses on topics related to early care
Research Connections houses an increasingly comprehensive collection of research reports, syntheses, and other critical information related to child care and early education, and in particular, children in low-income families; provides researchers access to data from major child care, Head Start, and early education research and evaluation studies; provides technical assistance to researchers and policy makers; provides collaboration and outreach that can strengthen dissemination and use of research by both the research and the policy maker communities, and provides support to the Child Care Policy Research Consortium.
