OPRE Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood Announcements

Improving Performance Measures and Instruments for Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood Grantees - An Opportunity to Make Your Voice Heard!

ACF is seeking comments on performance measures used for the Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood (HMRF) grant program. This effort is an important part of ACF's learning agenda to increase understanding of HMRF programs by collecting data on the program services, client participation, and outcomes. This information can inform program design, operation, and oversight for ACF, grantees, and other stakeholders.
Input from the public and a broad range of stakeholders will inform potential refinements and updates to the current performance measures. ACF would particularly welcome input on the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and ways to minimize the volume or burden of the data collection. Grantees, practitioners, curriculum developers, researchers, other stakeholders, and the public can review the call for comments through ACF's website (/opre/resource/healthy-marriage-and-responsibl...) and send comments by email to nformfeedback at The deadline for providing input is Friday, December 6, 2019.
