Including Fathers in State Programs and Policies – Why Child Support Agencies Should Play a Leadership Role & Availability of New FRPN Planning Grants

2-3:30 PM EST

This is a free webinar, jointly sponsored by NCSEA and the Fatherhood Research and Practice Network, FRPN, an initiative funded by DHHS, Office of Planning Research and Evaluation (OPRE). The webinar will highlight how states include fathers in programs and policies dealing with families and the critical role that child support agencies play in supporting such fatherhood initiatives and programs. The webinar will feature national information on state programs, funding arrangements and benefits as well as the experiences of child support agencies and programs in several states including Ohio and South Carolina. FRPN will describe its new funding initiative for $10,000 state planning grants for initiatives to promote father inclusion. The participation of State IV-D directors or their designees will be a requirement for funding.
