Regional Partnership Grants National Cross-Site Evaluation

2012-2020
Prepared For

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Children's Bureau

The Regional Partnership Grant (RPG) program supports partnerships between providers of child welfare services, substance abuse disorder (SUD) treatment, and other social services that enhance the safety and well-being of children who are in, or at risk of, out-of-home placement because of a parent’s or caretaker’s SUD.

The program, directed by the Children’s Bureau in the Administration for Children and Families, is a key federal program that the United States Congress authorizes to solely and specifically address the issues that arise at the intersection of child welfare and substance use.

RPG grantees are able to select, plan, and implement a slate of services and programs for families in their respective states and communities. Program guidelines require grantees to submit common measures of their performance, evaluate their programs, and participate in a national cross-site evaluation. Since 2012, Mathematica has designed and conducted the national cross-site evaluation, given technical assistance to grantees, and collected performance measures to support the RPG program.
