New Funding Opportunity for Child Care Policy Research Partnerships

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is soliciting applications for Child Care Policy Research Partnerships (CCPRP). This opportunity will fund up to eight 5-year cooperative agreements.  These CCPRP awards support partnerships between Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agencies in states, territories, or tribes and research partner organizations with demonstrated research capacity to develop rigorous investigations of child care subsidy policies and practices. This iteration of the CCPRP awards prioritizes research projects implementing rigorous, policy-relevant evaluations that will test whether quality improvement initiatives in states, territories, or tribes implemented through the CCDF “quality set-aside” increase families’ access to quality child care, especially access for children in underserved areas, infants and toddlers, children with disabilities, and children receiving care during nontraditional hours. Sponsored projects will be expected to participate in a consortium that will meet and communicate regularly to share lessons learned; identify opportunities for collaborative planning, measures development, and analysis; and to develop collective expertise and resources. For more information about prior awards made for CCPRP, see https://www.acf.hhs.gov/opre/project/child-care-policy-research-partnerships-1995-2023. The full announcement can be found here. If you have questions regarding this grant announcement, please email CCPRP@icf.com or call 1-877-350-5913.
