Areas of Interest Description: 

This program offers funding for demonstration projects that will promote responsible fatherhood in three activity areas: 1) supporting healthy marriage; 2) promoting responsible parenting; and 3) fostering economic stability. The program will enable fathers to improve their relationships and reconnect with their children. It will help fathers overcome obstacles and barriers that often prohibit them from being the most effective and nurturing parents possible. While the primary goal of the program is to promote responsible fatherhood in all of its various forms, an essential point is to encourage responsible fatherhood within the context of marriage.


ACF will award these funds on a competitive basis to States, territories, Indian tribes and Tribal organizations, and public and nonprofit community entities, including faith-based organizations.
