Description: Administration for Children and Families is considering a cooperative agreement to support the grantee as a national leader in disseminating research for the early childhood research field. The grantee will establish a web-based research clearinghouse to promote use of high quality early childhood research to inform policy and practice. The project will offer a comprehensive, and up-to-date bibliography of rigorous research including scholarly peer-reviewed research, policy briefs, state and federal government reports, and instruments from a wide range of disciplines and sources. Interactive tools will allow users to refine searches based on a broad range of factors. Through the website, Research Connections will offer research resources for researchers, policy makers, practitioners, and others. The Child Care and Early Education Research Connections grantee will provide collaboration and outreach that improves dissemination to and strengthens use of research by both the research and the policy maker communities (e.g., the Child Care and Early Education Policy Research Consortium). The Child Care and Early Education Research Connections will actively engage state and local administrators of child care and early education in using the research database to inform evidence-based policymaking. The award is expected to be for a 60 month project period, with five twelve-month budget periods. The ceiling for the first period is $1,000,000. The budgets for the remaining four twelve-month budget periods are expected to not exceed $750,000.
