provide reliable support for their children as they grow up.

This includes strategies such as early intervention, establishing and maintaining realistic child support orders, reducing unmanageable child support debt, promoting noncustodial parents’ positive engagement in the lives of their children, increasing noncustodial parent employment and family economic stability, improving family relationships, promoting children’s health, collaborating to reduce family violence, and preventing the need for child support services in the first place.

Collaborations with state IV-D agencies will also be considered, as well as other programmatic and operational innovations.

Please note that this synopsis has been updated to indicate that OCSE expects to make TIG awards in fiscal year 2014, rather than 2013 as was previously forecasted.
