FRPN Grantees Announced

We are excited to announce that the FRPN has selected its first round of funded projects - four projects designed to rigorously evaluate fatherhood programs that will receive a total of $350,000. These projects involve randomized-controlled trials (RCTs); are led by researcher/practitioner teams; and involve the collection of data from program participants and/or staff at pre and post-program time points to assess changes in father-child relationships and co-parenting.
