The Administration for Children and Families seeks to award up to five 5-year cooperative agreements for the development, implementation, and evaluation of strategies that focus on improving basic social work practice, policy, and procedures in order to improve outcomes and eliminate systemic barriers to: preventing entry into foster care; adoption; and other forms of permanency.

Through these grant awards, the Children’s Bureau (CB) aims to support states with resources to implement and sustain child welfare system improvement efforts, including technical assistance support, in order to assist grantees in strengthening outcomes related to permanency, safety, and well-being.

Using Child and Family Services Review findings, as well as Program Improvement Plans, Child and Family Services Plans, and/or Annual Progress and Services Reports, applicants will identify barriers, challenges, and potential solutions to: ensuring child safety; enhanced engagement with and service delivery to children and families, including fathers; maintaining family relationships and connections; supporting placement of children in kinship care arrangements, pre-adoptive, or adoptive homes; and/or permanency planning and achievement. During the project period, grantees will address these barriers and challenges through the development, implementation, and evaluation of intervention strategies that focus on improving basic child welfare practice - including family-focused approaches - and systemic factors. Applicants will be required to partner with courts and other systems that are involved with state or county-level child welfare initiatives and must demonstrate buy-in from appropriate leadership.

Grant Amount: Grants of up to $1,750,000 are available.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants include:

•Independent school districts

•City or township governments 

•Nonprofits that do not have a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education

The Office of Citizen Exchanges, Sports Diplomacy Division, of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for the International Sports Programming Initiative (ISPI). This initiative encourages organizations to manage sports exchange projects designed to reach underserved youth and/or their coaches/sports administrators who manage youth sports programs. These exchanges between the United States and select countries will be reciprocal exchanges that employ sports to address Sport and Social Change. Sports Diplomacy enhances cross-cultural understanding and opens new avenues of dialogue and collaboration between individuals and nations.

In support of U.S. foreign policy objectives, ECA’s sports diplomacy programs create people-to-people and institutional linkages through sport. The International Sports Programming Initiative uses sports to help underserved youth around the world develop important leadership skills, achieve academic success, promote tolerance and respect for diversity, and positively contribute to their home and host communities. Sports Diplomacy programs are an important tool for advancing U.S. foreign policy goals through interaction with hard-to-reach groups such as at-risk youth, women, minorities, people with disabilities, and non-English speakers. The focus of all programs must be on both male and female youth and/or their coaches/sports administrators. Programs designed to train elite athletes or coaches are ineligible under C.3 of this announcement.

Grant Amount: Grants amounts start at $150,000.

Eligibility: Public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(3) are eligible to apply. Applicant organizations must demonstrate their capacity for conducting international exchanges, focusing on three areas of competency:

1)Provision of projects that address the purpose and theme outlined in this document;

2)Age-appropriate programming for youth and/or coaches and sports administrators; and

3)Previous experience working on programs in the identified region groups/countries.
