The Administration of Children and Families seeks applications for Childcare Research Partnership Grants to support new research and evaluation activities via partnerships between Childcare Development Fund (CCDF) lead agencies and researchers from eligible organizations. Grantees must pursue research questions that are germane to national and state concerns and must work with local and state childcare stakeholders and researchers. Projects should add to the body of knowledge on the efficacy on child care subsidy policies, quality improvement initiatives that promote family economic self-sufficiency, children’s healthy development and learning and support for child care providers.

Grants range from $50,000 to $250,000. The estimated application due date is July 23, 2013. For more information, see the link below:
