Description: The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) plans to invite applications for Principal Investigators to join the Family Self-Sufficiency and Stability Research Network (the Network). The goal of this program of cooperative agreements is to support productive partnerships between social science scholars and state or local human services agencies. In addition to pursuing their individual programs of rigorous and relevant research, Scholars will participate in a multi-disciplinary learning community by collaborating with other members of the Network. Competitive applications will 1) propose a partnership with a State or local agency responsible for administering benefits or programming funded by the TANF block grant; and 2) pursue social science research that could directly inform local, State, or Federal human services policy to improve family economic self-sufficiency and stability, and 3) identify areas of interest for potential collaborative work with other Network Scholars. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate an established relationship with program partner(s) that is apparent throughout the research plan, from development and refinement of the research questions through the proposed data collection, interpretation, and dissemination.
