Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, for-profits, tribes, government agencies, and IHEs for research addressing child care policies. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to research the effectiveness of child care subsidy policies and practices.

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) plans to solicit applications for Child Care Policy Research Partnership (CCPRP) Grants. These four-year cooperative agreements will support partnerships between Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agencies in states, territories, or tribes and institutions with demonstrated research capacity to develop rigorous investigations of child care subsidy policies and practices. Sponsored projects will inform local and federal understanding about the efficacy of child care subsidy policies and practices to increase low-income families’ access to quality child care.

To ensure that the funded work is timely and relevant to the current child care context, projects are expected to be collaborative from start to finish. The CCDF Lead Agency and their research partners must work together throughout all phases of the project and are encouraged to engage other interested parties, as appropriate. This iteration of the CCPRP Grants Program will prioritize research projects exploring (1) evidence-informed approaches to measuring quality across different provider types and (2) approaches to building the supply of high-quality child care through targeted investments in the early childhood workforce. Sponsored projects will be expected to participate in a consortium that will meet and communicate regularly to identify opportunities for coordination, such as common data elements and research methods, and to develop collective expertise and resources for the field. The consortium’s collaboration will support research capacity and learning within individual projects and across recipients. 

The specific goals and requirements of the CCPRP grant program can be found starting on page 5 of the FOA. See Attached Files, below.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to notify ACF of their intention to submit an application under this funding opportunity.

Obtain a DUNS Number: All entities applying for funding, including renewal funding, must have a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number from Dun & Bradstreet (D&B). Applicants must enter the DUNS number in the data entry field labeled "Organizations DUNS" on the SF-424 form.

Register with SAM: In addition to having a DUNS number, organizations applying online through Grants.gov must register with the System for Award Management (SAM). All organizations must register with SAM in order to apply online. Failure to register with SAM will prevent your organization from applying through Grants.gov.

Create a Grants.gov Account: The next step in the registration process is to create an account with Grants.gov. Applicants must know their organization's DUNS number to complete this process. Completing this process automatically triggers an email request for applicant roles to the organization's E-Business Point of Contact (EBiz POC) for review. The EBiz POC is a representative from your organization who is the contact listed for SAM. To apply for grants on behalf of your organization, you will need the AOR role.
