The US Department of Health and Human Services has announced regional partnership grants for research and academic projects aimed at increasing the well-being of children affected by substance abuse.

According to HHS, the purpose of this forecasted funding opportunity is to provide competitive grant funds for up to 5 years for projects authorized by the Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act (Pub. L. 112-34).

These targeted grants will be awarded to regional partnerships that provide, through interagency collaboration and integration of programs and services, activities and services that are designed to increase the well-being of, improve permanency outcomes for, and enhance the safety of children who are in out-of-home placements or are at risk of entering out-of-home placements as a result of a parent’s or caretaker’s substance abuse.

Applicants will be expected to have a collaborative structure in place that is capable of building the regional capacity to meet a broad range of needs for families involved with both substance abuse treatment and the child welfare system.
