Federal Agencies Seek to Further Research on Child Neglect
New research opportunities in the field of child neglect were announced recently by the Federal Child Neglect Research Consortium, a group comprising components of the National Institute of Health, the Children's Bureau, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention with the Department of Justice, and the Education Department's Office of Special Education Programs.
According to the Program Announcement (PA-01-060), published in February, the Consortium invites applications “that will enhance our understanding of the etiology, extent, services, treatment, management, and prevention of child neglect.”
The PA follows on a Request for Applications (RFA) issued in 1999 for 5-year grants focusing on Research in Child Neglect. The Consortium awarded 15 grants under that RFA.
