Center for Research on Hispanic Children and Families: The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is considering soliciting applications for a Center for Research on Hispanic Children and Families, to lead and support investigation of the needs of Hispanic populations served by ACF and promising approaches to promote social and economic well-being among low-income Hispanic families. This research center (hereafter referred to as "Center") would ideally bring together a diverse, interdisciplinary team of academic and organizational partners to provide leadership in culturally competent research that can inform policies concerning low-income Hispanic families and to foster significant scholarship regarding the needs and experiences of the diverse Hispanic populations throughout the nation. Through a combination of research, research capacity building, and communication activities, this Center will ideally address a range of relevant issues including, but not limited to: a) definition and measurement of significant characteristics and experiences of Hispanic individuals, families, and communities; b) identification of barriers and facilitators of service utilization by Hispanic populations; c) examination of strategies to promote the social and economic well-being of Hispanic children and families and to strengthen Hispanic families; d) evaluation of promising approaches to serving Hispanic populations. The Center will be expected to develop research products, resources, and a comprehensive communication plan that aims to build research capacity in the field and to improve understanding of Hispanic populations in order to inform policy development and programmatic responses. The Center will focus broadly on marriage and relationships, fatherhood, child care and early education, and related issues such as employment and economic mobility of low-income families and children's healthy development and learning. Key topics of interest will be identified in the Funding Opportunity Announcement and will include, but are not limited to, research regarding mental health; substance abuse prevention and treatment; coordinated services; program evaluation; and rural populations. This award would be for a 60-month project period with five 12-month budget periods (i.e., October 2018 - September 2023). For more information about the current cooperative agreement, please visit
