Regional Partnership Grant Program
The Regional Partnership Grant (RPG) Program is administered by the Administration for Children, Youth, and Families, Children’s Bureau to improve the well-being of children affected by parental substance use disorders. The grants support interagency collaborations and integration of programs, services, and activities designed to increase the well-being, improve the permanency, and enhance the safety of children who are in, or at risk of, out-of-home placements as the result of a parent or caregiver’s substance use disorder. The partnerships implement a range of activities and interventions, including peer recovery coaching, family-centered substance use disorder treatment, parenting and family strengthening programs, services to pregnant and postpartum women, medication assisted treatment, in-home parenting and child safety support for families, and related evidence-based practices. Since 2007, Children’s Bureau has awarded six rounds of RPG funding to 109 grant projects across 38 states, including tribal communities. The map below displays the RPG sites and links to individual program descriptions.
NCSACW provides programmatic technical assistance to the RPG grantees on a variety of topics, including collaborative practice and policy, program sustainability, trauma-informed services, evidence-based and evidence-informed services to children, treatment and recovery support services, and family-centered substance use disorder intervention and treatment practices for women and families.
