Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, for-profits, Tribes, and school personnel in partnership with eligible state agencies to benefit children affected by substance abuse. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended for projects designed to increase well-being, improve permanency, and enhance the safety of children who are in, or at risk of, an out-of-home placement as a result of a parent's or caregiver's opioid or other substance misuse.

These RPG projects will provide activities and services through interagency collaboration and integration of programs. Successful applicants will have a collaborative infrastructure in place capable of building the region's capacity to meet a broad range of needs as for families involved with child welfare systems, substance use disorder treatment, courts, and other related service organizations while addressing race equity and support for underserved communities.

The RPG program aims to build evidence on the effectiveness of targeted approaches that improve outcomes for children and families affected by opioids and other substance use disorders. To this end, recipients will evaluate their local program; monitor ongoing activities and the progress towards the goals and objectives of the project; select and report on performance indicators that align with proposed program strategies and activities; and participate in a national cross-site evaluation that will describe outcomes for children, adults, and families enrolled in RPG projects as well as the outcomes of the partnerships. 

Information about Project Requirements can be found on page 6 of the RFP. See Attached Files, below.
