OPRE makes grants to support research in areas such as child care, Head Start and Early Head Start, child welfare, home visiting, welfare and employment, strengthening families and healthy marriage, and family and youth services. We do not make grants to individuals or for direct services. 

Grant Forecasts

Career Pathways Secondary Data Analysis Grants

These grants will support secondary analysis of data collected during the Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE) and Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program evaluations. The goal is to add to the body of knowledge in OPRE’s robust career pathways program research portfolio and other work across the field to gain a deeper understanding of the implementation and effectiveness of career pathways programs.

Family Self-Sufficiency and Stability Research Scholars Network

The goal of these grants is to support partnerships between social science scholars and state or local human services agencies to pursue programs of rigorous and relevant research. Scholars will also participate in a multi-disciplinary learning community by collaborating with other members of the Network.
