The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is interested in supporting research that will explore issues related to social service needs and public welfare systems in the United States Virgin Islands (USVI). This grant will support a partnership among researchers, local governments and community-based organizations to define and address research questions relevant to low-income people in the U.S. Virgin Islands and to the Head Start and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families programs.
This project will examine issues relevant to the social and economic well-being of low-income children and families in this U.S. Territory to improve understanding of the service needs, policy, and the most promising approaches within ACF programs to improve the quality of life in the region. Projects must address topics of importance to the Office of Head Start, the Office of Financial Assistance and the Administration for Children and Families.
