CB Announces Discretionary Grant Awards

The Children's Bureau has announced the recipients of its 2009 Discretionary Grants, including the awards for its National Resource Centers (NRCs). As part of the Children's Bureau's Training and Technical Assistance (T&TA) Network, the NRCs provide T&TA, as well as support, research, and consultation to help States and Tribes improve their child welfare systems in accordance with Federal requirements, especially the Child and Family Services Reviews.

While incumbents won awards for eight NRCs (with some slight changes in NRC names), awards were also made to two new NRCs:

  • NRC for In-Home Services
  • NRC for Tribes 

Children's Bureau priorities also were reflected in a number of other Discretionary Grant awards, including:

  • Rigorous Evaluations of Existing Child Abuse Prevention Programs
  • National Quality Improvement Center on the Representation of Children in the Child Welfare System
  • Abandoned Infants Assistance Act Grants
  • Family Connection Discretionary Grants
  • Tribal Title IV-E Plan Development Grants
