On September 30, 2011, the President signed the Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act (Public Law 112-34 under Title IV-B of the Social Security Act) into law. This law provided funding for 17 RPG-II sites and gave the Department of Health and Human Services the authority to provide two additional years of funding to previously awarded, targeted grant programs. The funding came with a cost-sharing requirement of 30 percent in Year 6 and 35 percent in Year 7, and was meant to help sites build upon the knowledge and lessons learned from their initial 2007 RPG awards. While changes were anticipated, grantees were expected to continue to align activities and services with their original proposed efforts. Eight sites were granted this two-year extension of their RPG grants at an amount of $500,000 per year. The RPG-I page provides the background on the original program.
