Discretionary Grants Awarded

The Children's Bureau recently announced the award of discretionary grants for FY 2007. The grants were made in five areas, with the greatest number of grants going toward programs to "Increase the Well-Being of, and to Improve the Permanency Outcomes for, Children Affected by Methamphetamine or Other Substance Abuse." Fifty-three grants were made to regional partnerships, including States and Tribes, to provide activities and services designed to increase the safety, permanency, and well-being of children at risk of or already in out-of-home placement due to parental substance abuse.

Other awards were made in the following areas:

  • 2007 National Child Welfare Leadership Institute
  • Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect Through Nurse Home Visitation
  • Using Comprehensive Family Assessments to Improve Child Welfare Outcomes
