Fatherhood: Ongoing Research and Program Evaluation Efforts

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services promotes the economic and social well-being of families, children, individuals, and communities. Many ACF programs interact with and serve fathers in an effort to promote economic self-sufficiency and social well-being for them and their families. Across ACF, we are implementing rigorous research and evaluation projects to better understand how to serve fathers and their families.

OPRE publishes these briefs to describe ongoing research and evaluation projects related to 1) ACF’s Responsible Fatherhood grant program, 2) non-custodial parents, and 3) fathers and fatherhood more broadly.

The point of contact is Katie Pahigiannis.
