Diaper Distribution Demonstration and Research Pilot

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Community Services (OCS) announces the availability of funds for a Diaper Distribution Demonstration and Research Pilot (DDDRP).

OCS will make approximately $ 8. 4 million available through a competitive grant process.

OCS expects


to award approximately seven cooperative agreements to eligible Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) state associations, tribes that were funded directly by CSBG in fiscal year (FY) 2023, and CSBG-funded territories.

Recipients will partner with community action agencies (CAAs), local social service agencies, and/or other non-profit community organizations to operate and expand diaper distribution programs for families with low incomes.The purpose of the DDDRP is to evaluate the ability of CAAs, social services agencies, and other non-profit community organizations to provide diapers and diapering supplies on a consistent basis through diaper distribution programs while also providing wraparound support services for families with low incomes.As part of the pilot and in cooperation with the recipients, OCS will conduct a robust evaluation to collect pertinent information to assess DDDRP grant recipients’ use of the funding to support low-income families by expanding ongoing diaper distribution programs (i.e., programs where families can receive diapers on a consistent basis) that also offer wraparound support services.Recipients will participate fully in a federal evaluation and follow all evaluation protocols established by ACF and/or its designee contractor(s).

Fully participating in a federal evaluation may include supporting and complying with special data collection requirements; providing additional administrative data on program participation or service receipt; facilitating on-site meetings and observations, including interviews with program and partner managers and staff as well as participants and other activities.

In addition, the federal evaluation may include an evaluation of the DDDRP's implementation, program and participant outcomes associated with DDDRP, an examination of ongoing diaper distributions as an anti-poverty strategy, and an assessment of the effectiveness of DDDRP.
