Office of Family Assistance; Notice to Award Single-Source Expansion Supplement Grant
Document Number: E7-22101
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-11-13
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
Notice is hereby given that a single-source program expansion is being made to Public Strategies, Inc., as the National Healthy Marriage Resource Center (NHMRC), located in Oklahoma City, OK, in the amount of $1,250,000 to conduct a national media campaign on the value of marriage and the skills needed to increase marital stability and health. Public Strategies, Inc. and their collaborative partners were competitively awarded on September 30, 2006 to operate the NHMRC. The goal of the NHMRC is to be the ``first stop shop'' for marriage education information, an experienced provider of training and technical assistance, and a major catalyst in advancing the healthy marriage field. Since healthy marriage is a nascent field, it is necessary for the NHMRC to promote healthy marriage on a broad, national level in order to achieve these stated goals. Research has repeatedly shown that a healthy marriage brings about good outcomes for individuals, families, and especially, for children. A national media campaign would significantly raise the awareness of the benefits of healthy marriage and the benefits of marriage education. The campaign would disseminate information that explains how marriage education can enhance a couple's ability to form and sustain a healthy marriage and describe the benefits to children being raised in healthy, married two parent households. Additionally, by promoting healthy marriage and marriage education on a national level, the NHMRC will encourage a national discussion and further the mission of ACF's Healthy Marriage Initiative to help couples and individuals, who have chosen marriage for themselves, gain greater access to marriage education services, on a voluntary basis, where they can acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to form and sustain a healthy marriage. After the appropriate reviews, it has been determined that this single-source expansion qualifies for funding. The period of this funding will extend from September 30, 2007 through September 29, 2011.

The Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), herein announces the awarding of fifty supplemental awards in the amount of $5,733,115 to Fiscal Year (FY) 2006 Mentoring of Children of Prisoners (MCP) grantees. Section 439 of the Social Security Act, as amended by the Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006 (Pub.

The program is designed to reach the President's goal of establishing 100,000 mentor/mentee relationships between a caring adult and a young person whose parent(s) is incarcerated in a correctional facility by the end of FY 2008. This funding is requested for those grantees that have demonstrated the capacity to make quality matches and currently making significant process in reaching their match goal. One-third of the grantees have made over 50% of their three-year match goal within their first year.

The Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) announces the approval of a deviation to supplement the National Runaway Switchboard for the purpose of expanding their services. Congress authorized the establishment of a ``national communications system to assist runaway and homeless youth in making contact with their families and service providers'' through the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA) of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended. Funding for the system was first authorized in fiscal year 1980. (The system currently is authorized through Part C, section 331, of the ``Runaway, Homeless, and Missing Children Protection Act,'' Pub. L. 108-96.) The Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), herein announces an expansion supplement award to the National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) for two initiatives; a comprehensive research project on runaway and at-risk youth and a comprehensive database conversion. The results of the comprehensive research project will enable NRS to better understand how to communicate with youth and develop strategies to connect with them and them with the NRS. The comprehensive database conversion will enhance the Switchboard's capability to download and manage information. This project will provide the NRS with the internal controls necessary to query and analyze data collected in their crisis logs. It is anticipated that the enhanced internal controls will result in a significant improvement in the way needs of runaway, homeless and other youth in at-risk situations are met. This expansion supplement is for a nine month project period for the amount of $162,637.

The Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), herein announces the awarding of ten supplemental awards in the amount of $1,932,300 to fund Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance cooperative agreements. The average amount per grantee would be $192,230. Section 439 of the Social Security Act, as amended by the Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006 (Pub.

This supplemental funding will be used to access the capacity building expertise of the ten Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance Providers for the purpose of enhancing the capacity of newly awarded lower scoring community and faith-based MCP grantees. It is expected that the supplementing of the ten RHY Training and Technical Assistance Providers will result in the reduction in program start-up issues and other barriers to high performance. It is critical that these MCP grantees receive the best possible services as it relates to enhancing their capacity to develop and maintain a quality mentoring program. The following agencies are receiving grant funds for a twelve month project period:
