Syntheses of CB Grant Clusters Debut on Web
Child Welfare Information Gateway has added a new feature to its website: discretionary grant syntheses. The Children's Bureau awards discretionary grants for research and program development to State, Tribal, and local agencies; faith-based and community-based organizations; and other nonprofit and for-profit groups. Selected clusters of grants funded under a single program announcement have been the subject of site visit reports and brief syntheses to document knowledge gained through the projects. The syntheses describe grantees' common challenges, strategies, outcomes, and lessons learned.
The first synthesis to be posted to Information Gateway's website discusses the knowledge gained through the Field Initiated Training Projects for Effective Child Welfare Practice With Hispanic Children and Families grant cluster. Between 2004 and 2007, four grantees conducted innovative projects designed to address the needs of Hispanic children and families. This synthesis is based on the grantees' final reports and other materials.
The new online synthesis is available in a printable PDF, as well as an easy-to-read tab format, which is organized into the following sections:
- Summary of Projects
- Overarching Themes
- Grantee Recommendations
The online syntheses join the online site visit reports already available on the Child Welfare Information Gateway website. Visit the Discretionary Grant Outcomes and Lessons Learned webpage to access both the syntheses and site visit reports:
