Since 2006, Congress has authorized the Children’s Bureau within the Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to fund discretionary grants, called Regional Partnership Grants (RPG), for improving safety, well-being, and permanency outcomes for children at risk of or in out-of-home placement because of parents’ or caregivers’ substance use issues. To build knowledge of effective, collaborative services provided by the partnerships, in 2012 the Children’s Bureau contracted with Mathematica for a cross-site evaluation. The 6th Report to Congress summarizes the cross-site evaluation findings on the partnerships and the implementation of evidence-based programs and practices of the third cohort of partnerships funded in 2014 (RPG3). The report also introduces the projects and evaluations of the fourth cohort of partnerships funded in 2017 (RPG4). This report also summarizes elements of the emerging redesign for the national cross-site evaluation.
