State Planning Mini Grants on Fatherhood

The FRPN's state planning mini grant funding opportunity is now closed. Please direct any questions to Jessica Pearson at


Year Three Funding

In January 2017, the FRPN selected our third group of funded projects. Our RFP was intended to support exploratory and descriptive research that will provide insights into previously unstudied or understudied areas. Four new projects that consider innovative programs, interventions and research reviews related to coparenting, employment and economic security, and/or father engagement and effective parenting for low-income fathers received 18-months of funding. 

Year Two Funding 

The second group of FRPN grantees includes five projects led by researcher/practitioner teams that 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/or coparenting. Learn more about these projects.


Year One Funding 

In 2014, the FRPN awarded a total $350,000 to four projects to evaluate fatherhood programs. Learn more about these projects.
