Deadline- 27th may 2013
U.S Department of Health & Human Services announced funding opportunity for Child Care Administrative Data Analysis Grants program. These grants would fund research and evaluation activities that primarily involve the analysis of child care administrative data. Projects would be led by CCDF Lead Agencies in states/territories and conducted in partnership with researchers.
Successful applicants will pursue research questions of national and state relevance and develop their methodology and research questions in partnership with local and state child care researchers and other stakeholders. Successful project proposals must involve the analysis of child care administrative data (e.g., ACF 801 data, data collected as part of administering a subsidy program or quality improvement initiative). Projects may involve linking administrative data to other existing data sources (e.g., CCDF Policies Database, state survey data). Funds from this grant may not be used for data collection. Proposals for collaborative projects exploring common questions across states would be permitted and encouraged.
Eligibility & Criteria-
- Proposed research projects must be led by State/Territory Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agencies. Local government agencies or nongovernmental agencies that administer CCDF programs on behalf of Lead Agencies are also eligible. Other organizations (e.g., public or private institutions of higher education, for profit or nonprofit research organizations) may partner with a CCDF Lead Agency or local agency, especially if the agency does not have the in-house capacity to conduct research. Each CCDF Lead Agency and local agency may submit no more than one application.
- Faith-based and community organizations that meet eligibility requirements are eligible to receive awards under this funding opportunity announcement. Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement.
