Secondary Data Analyses of Strengthening Families Datasets, 2020-2021

OPRE awarded four cooperative agreements to fund research to conduct secondary data analysis of archived ACF data, specifically the Building Strong Families (BSF) and Supporting Healthy Marriage (SHM). The grantees are covering topics such as the antecedents and outcomes of change in relationships, parenting behaviors and childhood outcomes, child and family resilience, and the relationship between strong couple relationships and risks associated with childhood maltreatment. Grantees will work collaboratively with their fellow grantees to move the field of research focused on strengthening families forward through the design of complimentary analyses and joint dissemination efforts.
