Two Year Extension -- Regional Partnership Grants to Increase the Well-Being of, and to Improve the Permanency Outcomes for, Children Affected by Substance Abuse: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Children's Bureau (CB), announces the availability of competitive continuation grant funds authorized by the Promoting Safe and Stable Families program. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to provide limited extension funds to a subset of the current Regional Partnership Grants. Funds will be awarded to existing Regional Partnerships Grantees that provide, through interagency collaboration and integration of programs and services, activities and services that are designed to increase the well-being of, improve permanency outcomes for, and enhance the safety of children who are in out-of-home placements or are at risk of being placed in out-of-home placements as a result of a parent's or caretaker's substance abuse. The Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act (Pub. L. 112-34) allows the Secretary of Health and Human Services to continue the funding of previously funded targeted grants program for 2 years (section 437(f) (3)(B)(ii) of the Act). This competition for extension funds includes the same requirements listed in the original funding opportunity announcement. This includes participation by the State child welfare agency responsible for the State plan under Title IV-B or Title IV-E of the Social Security Act in the regional partnership. As required by the legislation, if an Indian Tribe or tribal consortium enters into a regional partnership, the Indian tribe may (but is not required to) include the State child welfare agency as a partner in the collaborative agreement. If the partnership is an Indian Tribe or tribal consortia, it may not enter into a collaborative agreement only with Tribal child welfare agencies (or a consortium of such agencies). These extension grants will build on the knowledge and lessons learned from the initial 2007 Regional Partnership Grant award. To fully meet the intent of the funding opportunity, grantees will continue the specific, well-defined program services and activities implemented in the first 5 years of the funding period. Grantees are required to continue collecting and reporting on selected performance indicators. The cost-sharing requirement is 30 percent in year 6 and 35 percent in year 7.
