Subject:FW: National Center for Evidence-Based Practice Request for Applications issued

Dear Colleagues, We are pleased to announce the Round 2 Request for Applications for the National Center for Evidence-Based Practice in Child Welfare. The Children's Bureau awarded a cooperative agreement for the National Center for Evidence-Based Practice in Child Welfare to the University of Maryland, School of Social Work, Ruth H. Young Center for Families and Children in 2013. The goal of this 5-year project is to provide opportunities for local jurisdictions to have a coordinated and supported strategy to effectively and collaboratively address the emotional and behavioral needs of children, youth, and families served in the child welfare system. Child welfare systems in states, tribes, and the District of Columbia are invited to apply jointly with their State public mental health system (child and adolescent division). Implementing sites can be a single city or region. The RFA will provide in-depth information about organizational support for sites, content for the integrated learning tracks, participant expectations, and site selection processes. Our multi-faceted learning and organizational support model, Partnering for Success, aligns with the Administration for Children and Families' priority to provide services aimed at improving well-being outcomes for children and their families by offering an evidence-based treatment intervention that is trauma focused and includes interventions to improve caregivers' parenting skills. The model supports the work being done in many of the Title IV-E Waiver Demonstration Projects related to improving the mental health outcomes of children and youth, building the capacity of local jurisdictions to provide and sustain evidence-based treatment services and improving the collaborative partnership and planning process across child-serving systems. The Center has been actively working with 4 sites since the first round of awards went out: Baltimore County, Maryland; New York City, Maine and Oklahoma. Both Maryland and New York City are actively implementing the model with children and families. Maine and Oklahoma are working with us on selecting regions and mental health providers and will begin formal activities within the next few months. We will be selecting an additional 2 sites in this upcoming cohort. The National Center for Evidence-Based Practice in Child Welfare is pleased to provide links to both our Request for Applications and the Informational Webinar.
