Family Strengthening Scholars: NOTICE: The original Funding Opportunity Number for this announcement, HHS-2014-ACF-OPRE-PA-0804, has been revised to HHS-2014-ACF-OPRE-PD-0804. The Administration for Child and Families, Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation plans to solicit applications for the Family Strengthening Research Scholars grants to support dissertation research on healthy marriage/responsible fatherhood policy issues (HMRF). These grants are meant to build capacity in the research field to focus research on questions that have direct implications for HMRF policy decision-making and program administration, and to foster mentoring relationships between faculty members and high-quality doctoral students. These grants are intended to address issues of significance to inform policy decisions and solutions, particularly for underserved/understudied populations (e.g., low-income families, minority populations), utilize rigorous research methodology (both primary data collection and secondary data analysis), and help inform the development of future intervention research.
