Description: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to solicit proposals for a 36-month project that will build evidence of effectiveness of Kinship Navigator (KN) programs, conduct and evaluate a KN program that effectively assists kinship caregivers in learning about, finding, and using programs and services to meet the needs of the children and youth they are raising and their own needs. Grantees will be selected based on readiness to implement a rigorous local evaluation designed to demonstrate significant findings on the effectiveness of the KN program on one of the select target outcomes of child safety, child permanency, child or adult well-being, access to services, referral to services, and/or satisfaction with services. Title IV-E KN programs must meet grant requirements in section 427(a)(1) of the Social Security Act (the Act) and must be operated in accordance with promising, supported, or well-supported practice standards, as determined by title IV-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse. Children’s Bureau Program Instruction 18-11 provides guidance on the requirements for participating in the title IV-E KN Program. Additionally, the authorizing legislation specifies the following matching requirements: federal share of the total project cost will decline and non-federal share match levels will increase in the third year of the 3-year grant period, as required by section 427(d) of the Act. Grantees must provide at least 25 percent of the total approved cost of the project for the first 2 years of the project period and 50 percent of the total approved cost of the project in the third year of the project period. No more than 50 percent of the non-federal share may be in kind, as required by section 427(e) of the Act.
