New Funding Opportunity 

The FRPN has issued our second request for proposals to support evaluation of fatherhood programs. We will distribute approximately 2-4 awards of $50,000 and 4-5 awards of $100,000. Letters of interest for this grant funding opportunity are due February 5, 2016. 


FRPN Measurement Resources

As part of our work to promote the evaluation of fatherhood programs, the FRPN is developing research measures that help to assess outcomes or moderating variables among the fathers participating in those programs. Each measure includes a corresponding video that provides a brief training on how to use the measure.


Our Focus

The FRPN includes three programmatic focus areas:

Responsible fatherhood: Programs or interventions to increase positive father engagement with children.

Economic security: Programs or interventions to increase father's ability to support themselves and their children and families economically.

Coparenting/healthy relationships: Programs or interventions to increase parenting time and support stable and positive coparental relationships and healthy relationships.
