Adoption Opportunities: Diligent Recruitment of Families for Children in the Foster Care System: The purpose of this program announcement is to fund, by awarding cooperative agreements, multi-faceted diligent recruitment programs for a range of resource families for children in foster care, including kinship, foster, concurrent and adoptive families. Funded projects will: 1. Implement comprehensive multi-faceted diligent recruitment programs for resource families, including kinship, foster, concurrent and adoptive families for children and youth served by public child welfare agencies as a means of improving permanency outcomes; 2. Integrate the diligent recruitment program with other agency programs including foster care case planning and permanency planning processes to facilitate active concurrent planning activities; 3. Evaluate the implementation of the comprehensive diligent recruitment programs to document processes and potential linkages between diligent recruitment and improved outcomes; and 4. Develop identifiable sites that other States/locales seeking to implement improved diligent recruitment methods can look to for guidance, insight, and possible replication.

- Additional Information on Eligibility
- Collaborative efforts are acceptable, but applications must identify a primary applicant responsible for administering the cooperative agreement. Collaborative efforts must include the pertinent State, Tribal, or local child welfare agency(s) as full and active participants in the project. Collaborations may include private agencies, faith-based organizations, non-profit organizations, institutions of higher learning, family finding organizations, organizations with relevant experience to one or more of the required strategies, and any combination of the eligible applicants listed. The public child welfare agency must identify and have jurisdiction over the population to be served. To be eligible to apply as part of collaboration, institutions of higher education must have an accredited social work education program, or other accredited bachelor or graduate level programs leading to a degree relevant to work in the child welfare field. It is critical that, as a group, these projects address the specific issues and challenges associated with implementation in urban and non-urban sites, as well as county-driven systems and State-driven systems. This is especially true in States with very large urban areas that require a great deal of focus in the State's CFSR PIP. Therefore, CB reserves the right to award funding to one urban project and one non-urban project, as well as one project in a State-driven system and one project in a county-driven system, depending upon the applications received. Foreign entities are not eligible under this announcement.
