Regional Partnership Grants

In October 2007, the Administration on Children Youth and Families (ACYF), Children’s Bureau (CB) awarded grants to 53 partnerships across the country, including 7 tribes to improve the well-being, permanency and safety outcomes of children who are in out-of-home placement as a result of a parent’s or caregiver’s methamphetamine or other substance abuse, or are at risk of such placement. In September 2012, ACYF/CB awarded 17 new RPGs and 2-year extension grants to 8 of the 53 original grantees. This was made possible by Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act (Pub. L. 112-34) signed into law in September 2011. In September 2014, four additional 5-year grants were awarded.


Through the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW) contract, CFF provides programmatic technical assistance to the RPG grantees on a variety of topics, including collaborative practice and policy, program sustainability, trauma-informed services, evidence-based and evidence-informed services to children, treatment and recovery support services, and family-centered substance abuse intervention and treatment practices for women and families..
