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.
