The Fatherhood Research and Practice Network (FRPN) was a cooperative agreement awarded to Temple University with a subcontract to the Center for Policy Research in Denver, CO. The FRPN pursued three main goals:
- Promote rigorous evaluation of fatherhood programs.
- Expand the number of researchers and practitioners collaborating to evaluate fatherhood programs by providing training and technical assistance to develop their capacity to conduct and participate in high-quality research studies and evaluations.
- Disseminate information that leads to effective fatherhood practice and research.
The FRPN primarily focused on economically disadvantaged and other under-studied populations of fathers and families.
