Description: The purpose of this forecasted funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to award (5) cooperative agreements to implement and evaluate practices and interventions that: provide an array of kinship preparation services and on-going kinship supports based on a comprehensive review of local and national data on challenges and successes, improving permanency and well-being outcomes for families with children in kinship care; and promote co-parenting/shared parenting principles that build trusting relationships between caregivers and parents to ensure parents remain actively involved in normal child-rearing activities (including relative/kinship caregivers and non-related resource families). These demonstration grants will secure strong partnerships needed for effective and efficient selection of practices and interventions, program implementation, and evaluation activities. The grants will also meaningfully engage parents, relatives, kin caregivers, youth, foster parents and alumni of foster care who have lived foster care experience throughout the project. The project period will be 5 years.
