Partnerships to Demonstrate the Effectiveness of Supportive Housing for Families in the Child Welfare System: The Administration for Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Children's Bureau (CB), announces the availability of competitive grant funds authorized by the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) Reauthorization Act of 2010 (Public Law (P.L.) 111-320). These targeted five-year grants are to be awarded to support: The development or expansion of triage procedures for a subset of families who come to the attention of the child welfare system due to severe housing issues and high service needs; Local implementation of supportive housing services that integrate community services for housing and other critical services for the specified target population; Customized case management services for children and their parents, as well as trauma informed interventions and evidence-based mental health services through partnerships to access additional services through community-based service providers; and Evaluations that examine the process and implementation outcomes for these grants. Grants will further triage efforts outlined in the reauthorization of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act 2010 through collaborations between child protective services and various community authorities, agencies and providers, focused on intervention, prevention and investigation of child maltreatment. Projects under this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will serve a subset of families for whom the lack of adequate housing is a factor, in addition to other high service needs, in the imminent placement or placement of the child, or children, in out-of-home care. Community-linked services, as specified in CAPTA, will be provided to families through the local implementation of supportive housing services. The demonstration models will build upon and adapt supportive housing services designed to respond to the complex needs of families with child protective services involvement in a multidisciplinary and ongoing manner. Evidence-based, trauma-informed services will be embedded into the service structure in order to improve housing stability and engagement in supportive services. Applications must describe what evidence-based, trauma-informed services they are considering for inclusion or will include in the service array. Expected outcomes are: a reduction in child welfare system contacts, reduction in child maltreatment, child removals, and foster care placements.
