Funding Opportunity Number: HHS– 2005–ACF–OCS–ET–0043. CFDA Number: 93.570. Due Date for Applications: Application is due August 15, 2005. Executive Summary: The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces that competing applications will be accepted for a new grant pursuant to the Secretary’s authority under section 678(A) of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Act, as amended, by the Community Opportunities, Accountability, and Training and Educational Services (COATES) Human Services Reauthorization Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105–285). These activities must fund training and technical assistance resources for the Community Services Network to ensure that the needs of eligible entities and programs relating to improving program quality (including quality of financial management practices) are addressed to the maximum extent feasible; and incorporate mechanisms to ensure responsiveness to local needs. The proposed grants will fund training and technical assistance resources for the Community Services Network focusing on improving the quality of programs carried out under the CSBG act and the delivery of healthy VerDate jul<14>2003 18:32 Jul 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 marriage strategies among low income people served by local community action agencies. Specifically, OCS will offer one-year grants to fund a one year project period for the creation and dissemination of ‘‘best practice’’ technical assistance materials from local community organizations, including those that are faith-based, that have demonstrated success in promoting or sustaining healthy marriages among clients as part of an overall strategy to help lowincome people achieve family and child development, and/or self-sufficiency goals. Special emphasis is being placed on the development and dissemination of ‘‘best practice’’ materials that focus on a wide range of low-income populations, including racial and ethnic minorities. I. Funding Opportunity Description The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces the availability of competitive grants for training and technical assistance activities that will provide Community Services Network organizations with healthy marriage education models and disseminating findings from these models. These grants are for innovative projects, planned and designed specifically to assist in the development and delivery of successful marriage education programs for low-income couples. Projects should be designed to implement activities over a one-year project and budget period. Project implementation should include two phases: (I) Consumer-based data gathering, planning, and model development; (II) Program design and service delivery. Technical assistance to organizations in the community services network will focus entirely on the lesson’s learned and best practices based on grantee’s experiences and early findings and will be disseminated throughout the entire project period. Eligible applicants are state-wide or local organizations with demonstrated expertise in providing training to individuals and organizations on methods of effectively addressing the needs of low-income families and communities within the Community Services Network client base. Awarded projects will be administered through a cooperative agreement. This agreement will require a close working relationship between OCS and the successful applicant. Background The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) has encouraged the formation and maintenance of healthy PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 marriages and families as part of its overall strategy to help low-income people achieve family and child development goals, and greater economic self-sufficiency. Over the past four years, many community organizations, including designated community action agencies, faith-based groups, and public human service agencies, have undertaken special initiatives designed to promote healthy marriages, often with financial support from ACF program offices. Although some progress has been made, more needs to be done to expand the current knowledge base about the kinds of marriage support programs that are most effective and culturally appropriate to meet the needs of diverse, low-income families to improve their marital health and stability. The CSBG Supporting Healthy Marriage T&TA grants will give community organizations a valuable opportunity to develop solid strategies to support healthy marriages and provide the Community Services Network with another effective support service for low-income families. These grants will also help to answer questions about what works and what does not work in supporting healthy marriages in low-income settings and provide the network with a training and technical assistance resource as other organizations attempt to offer similar programs. Healthy marriages are good for children, families, and society as a whole. Research tells us that on average, men and women in healthy marriages are more likely to build wealth, have better health, experience emotional well-being and live longer. More importantly, children who grow up in healthy, married families do better on a host of outcomes than those who grow up in other family forms. For example, studies have shown that children in healthy married families are at less risk for substance abuse, emotional distress and mental illness, suicide, criminal behavior, educational decline, poverty, child abuse and neglect. Further, children raised in healthy, married families are more likely to develop better relationships with their parents, develop stable marriages and families themselves, experience greater economic security, perform better academically and later in occupational settings, and have better physical health. In addition, communities with high proportions of healthy, married families are safer and experience fewer social problems than those with lower proportions of healthy, married families. Research also tells us that what separates stable and healthy marriages from unstable and unhealthy ones is not E:\FR\FM\14JYN1.SGM 14JYN1
