Family Connection Grants: Using Family Group Decision-making to Build Protective Factors for Children and Families: The purpose of this FOA is to support demonstration projects that test the effectiveness of family group decision-making as a service approach that prevents children from entering foster care, thereby reducing the time that these children and families are involved with the child welfare system. Projects will engage families in building protective factors and reducing risk factors for children and families, and will address related domestic violence, mental health, and substance abuse issues.
