The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation within the Administration for Children and Families (OPRE) invites applications for grants to support research examining the role that Head Start can play in promoting family well-being, including health, safety, financial security, and school readiness. Projects must be led by researchers working in partnership with one or more Head Start programs. Together, they will identify and evaluate promising dual-generation approaches, which combine intensive, high-quality, child-focused programs with intensive, high-quality, adult-focused services to support both parent well-being and children’s school readiness, within the context of Head Start.
