Description: This FOA, formerly HHS-2017-ACF-OPRE-PD-1209 will now be listed under HHS-2017-ACF-OPRE-PR-1209. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE), will solicit applications for Family Strengthening Scholars grants to support dissertation research on healthy marriage policy issues. These grants are meant to build capacity in the research field to focus research on questions that have direct implications for healthy marriage policy decision-making and program administration, and to foster mentoring relationships between faculty members and high-quality doctoral students. These grants are intended to address issues of significance to inform policy decisions and solutions, particularly for underserved/understudied populations (e.g., low-income families, minority populations), utilize rigorous research methodology (both primary data collection and secondary data analysis), and help inform the development of future intervention research.
