Center For Research on Hispanic Children & Families, 2013-2018 and 2018-2023

Project Overview

The National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families leads and supports investigation of the needs of Hispanic populations served by ACF and of promising approaches to promote social and economic well-being among low-income Hispanic families. The Center’s research focuses on early care and education; poverty reduction and economic self-sufficiency; and fatherhood, family structure, and family dynamics. In addition to generating new research to inform ACF programs and policies to better serve Hispanic children and families, the Center aims to build research capacity by providing tools, resources, and support for the research community and emerging scholars. A Research Scholars Program advances the goal of supporting and expanding the pipeline of emerging scholars pursuing research on Hispanic children and families that can inform programs and policies. Led by Child Trends, the Center brings together a diverse, interdisciplinary team from multiple academic and research organizations, including Duke University, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and University of Maryland, College Park.
