Feds spend $800K to teach responsible fatherhood

The Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families (AFC) is providing $800,000 in funding to create a Responsible Fatherhood Research Network.

The initiative is described in the grant abstract as a “multi-year plan” designed “to disseminate information about good fatherhood parenting practices by building research and practice knowledge and capacity” and to “increase positive father involvement in the lives of their children.”

The grant, announced on June 7 and open to applicants until Aug. 2, stated that the network, once established, “will be expected to have a primary focus on economically disadvantaged fathers and families and other under studied population groups.”

In the grant announcement, posted on the grants.gov website, the category of the funding was listed as “income security and social services.”
