The Fatherhood Research and Practice Network has released its first request for proposals to support rigorous evaluation research being conducted on fatherhood programs and services within their identified focus areas. The purpose of these grants is to increase the number and quality of evaluations of fatherhood programs and learn more about how to better serve low-income fathers, racial/ethnic minorities and other populations that have not been widely studied. 
Letters of interest for the first round of funding are due on July 30. The FRPN will notify applicants of their official invitation to submit a proposal by August 15. Full proposals will be due by September 30 and award notifications will be distributed on October 20. Selected projects will receive funding of $50,000 - $150,000 over two years. Read more.
