Description

<p class="p1">As the nation continues to expand the horizon of opportunities and possibilities through advances in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the need for a more diverse and well-prepared STEM workforce is also expanding [1]. The challenge of preparing citizens for the expanding workforce and the changing workplace environments calls for new innovations in STEM education [2]. ITEST is a research and development program that supports projects to promote PreK-12 student interests and capacities to participate in the STEM and information and communications technology (ICT) workforce of the future. The ITEST program supports research on the design, development, implementation, and selective spread of innovative strategies for engaging students in technology-rich experiences that: (1) increase student awareness of STEM occupations; (2) motivate students to pursue appropriate education pathways to STEM occupations; or (3) develop disciplinary-based knowledge and practices, or promote critical thinking, reasoning skills, or communication skills needed for entering STEM workforce sectors. ITEST projects may adopt an interdisciplinary focus that includes multiple STEM disciplines, focus on a single discipline, or focus on one or more sub-disciplines. The ITEST program supports projects that provide evidence for factors, instructional designs, and practices in formal and informal learning environments that broaden participation of students from underrepresented groups in STEM fields and related education and workforce domains. Projects that actively engage business and industry partners to better ensure that PreK-12 experiences foster the knowledge and skill-sets needed for emerging STEM occupations are strongly encouraged. <p class="p1">References: <p class="p1">[1] National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Description

The ONR seeks a broad range of applications for augmenting existing or developing innovative solutions that directly maintain, or cultivate a diverse, world-class STEM workforce in order to maintain the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps&#8217; technological superiority. The goal of any proposed effort must provide solutions that will establish and maintain pathways of diverse U.S. citizens who are interested in uniformed or civilian DoN (or Navy and Marine Corps) STEM workforce opportunities. As the capacity of the DoN Science and Technology (S&T) workforce is interconnected with the basic research enterprise and STEM education system, ONR recognizes the need to support efforts that can jointly improve STEM student outcomes and align educational efforts with Naval S&T current and future workforce needs. This announcement explicitly encourages projects that improve the capacity of education systems and communities to create impactful STEM educational experiences for students and workers. Submissions are encouraged to consider including active learning approaches and incorporating 21st century skill development. Projects must aim to increase student and worker engagement in STEM and enhance people with needed Naval STEM capabilities. ONR encourages applications to utilize current STEM educational research for informing project design and advancing our understanding of how and why people choose STEM careers and opportunities of naval relevance. While this announcement is relevant for any stage of the STEM educational system, funding efforts will be targeted primarily toward projects addressing the below communities or any combination of these communities: &#8226; Secondary education communities; &#8226; Post-Secondary communities; &#8226; Informal science communities; &#8226; Current naval STEM workforce communities. Project scope may range in size and complexity. Projects that are already established with prior funding sources or have established stakeholders are especially encouraged to consider the following scope areas: &#8226; Develop and implement exploratory pilot projects that seek to create new educational experiences within educational and training communities. &#8226; Develop larger cohesive STEM education and training activities that strengthen the capacity of regional communities and stakeholders to improve STEM education and training. &#8226; Establish meetings of stakeholders that must seek to connect relevant people and organizations to explicitly develop broader projects for impacting entire communities. The technical content of any idea must establish naval relevance within the priority areas as outlined in the &#8220;Naval Research and Development Framework and Addendum&#8221;, https://www.onr.navy.mil/our-research/naval-research-framework. Broad priority areas are as follows: &#8226; Augmented Warfighter &#8226; Integrated & Distributed Forces &#8226; Operational Endurance &#8226; Sensing & Sense-Making &#8226; Scalable Lethality While not a formal requirement or program focus of this FOA, applicants are strongly encouraged to consider under-represented and under-served populations including women and minorities in project plans. Special audience priority areas may include, but not be limited to, military dependent children, veteran initiatives, and education systems integral to naval science and technology. All efforts should improve education and training outcomes and connections to naval STEM careers. Applicants are encouraged to understand the significant reorganization of STEM funding across the Federal government. Applicants seeking to improve general national STEM performance rather than a focus on Naval workforce needs, and particularly efforts aimed at the P/K-9 levels, are encouraged to seek funding from one of the designated lead agencies: The Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, or the Smithsonian Institution. White papers should: &#8226; Be innovative and novel to address the program description; &#8226; Create meaningful content and participant experiences that meet Naval STEM education and workforce priorities, and that will expose participants to elements such as Navy and Marine Corps STEM skills, content, careers, facilities and personnel (uniformed, civilian, active duty or retired); &#8226; Collect a set of program-specific measures of performance and measures of effectiveness appropriate to the goals of the project; &#8226; Contain a strategy for self-sufficiency, such that following the completion of ONR&apos;s investment, the effort will have a clear financial sustainability path and leave enduring organizational capability; and &#8226; Be distinct from those types of efforts requested by ONR&apos;s Long Range BAA. Specific application evaluation criteria for this FOA are included in Section II. E. Proposers whose efforts are primarily to purchase supplies and materials, cover the cost of student tuition, stipends, labor, internship costs, or provide salary and/or travel support are discouraged from applying.

Description

Thinking for a Change (T4C) is an integrated cognitive behavioral change program authored by Jack Bush, Ph.D., Barry Glick, Ph.D., and Juliana Taymans, Ph.D., under a cooperative agreement with the National Institute of Corrections (NIC). T4C incorporates research from cognitive restructuring theory, social skills development, and the learning and use of problem solving skills. T4C is comprised of 25 lessons that build upon each other, and contains appendices that can be used to craft an aftercare program to meet ongoing cognitive behavioral needs of offender groups. Not all lessons can be completed in one session, so a typical delivery cycle may take 30 sessions. Sessions should last between one and two hours. Ideally, the curriculum is delivered two times per week, with a minimum recommended dosage of once per week and a maximum of three times per week. Participants must be granted time to complete mandatory homework between each lesson. The program is designed to be provided to correctional clients, adults and youth, males and females. It is intended for groups of eight to twelve and should be delivered only by trained facilitators. Due to its integrated structure, T4C is a closed group, meaning members need to start at the beginning of a cycle, and may not join the group mid-stream (lesson five is a logical cut-off point for new group members).

Strengthening Child Welfare Systems to Achieve Expected Child and Family Outcomes

Competition Opens

05/04/2018

Competition Closes

07/18/2018

Description

When children are placed in out-of-home care (also called foster care), it is important that child welfare agencies find safe, permanent homes for them as quickly as possible. In many circumstances, children can be reunited with their families, but in some cases, children find homes with relatives or adoptive families. Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs) have consistently found that many child welfare systems need to improve their adoption work, as evidenced by their difficulty in achieving substantial conformity on permanency outcomes. These shortcomings include failure to make concerted efforts towards timely permanency for adoption and preserving family connections; inadequate engagement of parents, children and youth in case planning; limited and ineffective service provision; insufficient frequency and duration of child visitations/parenting time; punitive uses of visitation/parenting time; delays in establishing the goal of adoption; a lack of meaningful concurrent planning; and lengthy appeal processes for contested termination of parental rights. These permanency outcomes relate to basic social work, legal, and judicial practices that impact adoption outcomes and also have effects on the safety and well-being of children in care. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to award up to five 5-year cooperative agreements for the development, implementation, and evaluation of strategies that focus on better adoption outcomes by improving basic social work, legal, and judicial practice in order to eliminate systemic barriers to: adoption; preventing entry into foster care; and other forms of permanency. Due to the intersection of permanency, safety, and well-being, an effective system reform effort focused on improving adoption outcomes by improving concurrent planning and reducing time to permanency will also require attention to safety and well-being outcomes. Therefore, through these grant awards, the Children’s Bureau (CB) aims to support states with resources to implement and sustain child welfare system improvement efforts, including technical assistance support, in order to assist grantees in strengthening outcomes related to permanency, safety, and well-being. Applicants are required to use CFSR findings, Program Improvement Plans (PIPs), Child and Family Services Plans, Title IV-E Foster Care Eligibility Review, Annual Progress and Services Reports, and Court Improvement Program (CIP) Plans and CIP Self-Assessments to identify barriers, challenges, and potential solutions to: supporting placement of children in kinship care arrangements, preadoptive, or adoptive homes; permanency planning and achievement; ensuring child safety; enhanced engagement with and service delivery to children and families, including fathers; enhancing case planning; and/or maintaining family relationships and connections. During the project period, grantees will address these barriers and challenges through the development, implementation, and evaluation of intervention strategies that focus on improving basic child welfare practice, that help ensure family-focused approaches, meaningful engagement, high quality legal representation, and CFSR systemic factors. Applicants will be required to partner with the Administrative Office of the Courts, CIP, local courts, and other systems that are involved with state or county-level child welfare initiatives and must demonstrate buy-in from appropriate leadership.

CDC announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 funds to implement CDC-RFA-DP18-1809: High Obesity Program. The growing body of evidence suggests that obesity is one of the most significant challenges facing the public health system. If this continues, obesity and the many complications it causes will increase the disease burden in the United States. Poor nutrition and low levels of physical activity affect overall health and are significant risk factors for obesity and other chronic diseases. Obesity in the United States affects 78.6 million (35%) adults and 12.7 million (17%) children and accounts for approximately $147 billion in annual health care costs. The burden of obesity and other chronic diseases negatively affects our nation's businesses, economy, and military readiness and is higher among certain racial/ethnic populations and geographical locations.This five-year program provides resources for land grant universities to leverage community extension services to implement evidence-based strategies that increase access to places that provide healthier foods and safe and accessible places for physical activity in counties with an adult obesity rate of over 40%.

Description

This initiative supports research to test the effectiveness of combined strategies to both detect and intervene to reduce the risk of suicide behavior, suicide ideation, and non-suicidal self-harm (NSSI) by youth in contact with the juvenile justice system. Opportunities for detection and prevention start at early points of contact (e.g., police interaction, the intake interview) and continue through many juvenile justice settings (e.g., pre-trial detention, juvenile or family court activities, court disposition, placement and on-going care in either residential or multiple community settings.) This FOA invites intervention strategies that are designed to be delivered in typical service settings using typically available personnel and resources, to enhance the implementation of interventions that prove effective, enhance their future uptake in diverse settings, and thereby reduce risk of suicide and self-harm in this population. This FOA is published in parallel to a companion R34 FOA (PAR-xx-xxx) supporting pilot studies in preparation for the larger-scale studies described here.

Description

This notice solicits applications for Rural Health Integration Models for Parents and Children to Thrive (IMPACT). A two-generational approach focuses on creating opportunities for and addressing needs of both vulnerable children and their parents together. It prioritizes and facilitates coordination of programs and services needed to address the additive effects of poverty and geographic isolation on early childhood health and development. A holistic-family-based approach acknowledges the importance of the family in shaping health and developmental outcomes for children.2 Research has shown that the well-being of parents greatly impacts the health and developmental trajectories of their children and is a crucial factor in children’s social-emotional, physical, and economic well-being. At the same time, the emotional and behavioral needs of at-risk infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are best met through coordinated services that focus on relationships, especially with parents and other caregivers. Parents’ ability to succeed in school and/or at work is affected by how well their children are doing.

Description

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to provide competitive grant funds for regional partnership grants (RPGs) to improve the well-being of children affected by substance abuse. These targeted grants will be awarded to regional partnerships that provide through interagency collaboration and integration of programs and services, activities and services that are designed to increase the well-being of, improve permanency outcomes for, and enhance the safety of children who are in out-of-home placements or are at risk of entering out-of-home placements as a result of a parent's or caretaker's substance abuse. Applicants are expected to have a collaborative structure in place that is capable of building a region’s capacity to meet a broad range of needs for families involved with both substance abuse treatment and the child welfare system. Per the legislative requirements, RPGs are required to select and report on performance indicators and evaluation measures to increase the knowledge that can be gained from the program. Partnerships will: Use specific, well-defined, and evidence-based programs that are also trauma-informed and targeted to the identified population; Conduct an evaluation that is sufficiently rigorous to contribute to the evidence base on service delivery, outcomes and costs associated with the project's chosen interventions; and Participate in the national cross-site evaluation, which includes an implementation and partnership study, an outcomes study, and an impact study. This project is for one 36-month project period. Grantees should anticipate spending approximately one-third of the project award per each 12-month period.

Description

“An organization may submit only one proposal under this program solicitation.” “This Cooperative Agreement will begin no earlier than March 1, 2019, and extend for up to 24 months.” Program Description Our five-year research agenda aims to build public knowledge about the arts’ contributions to individuals and society. Through the NEA Research Labs (“Research Labs”), we seek to extend this agenda and its impact by cultivating a series of transdisciplinary research partnerships, grounded in the social and behavioral sciences, to produce and report empirical insights about the arts for the benefit of arts and non-arts sectors alike. Each Research Lab will define its own agenda, conduct a research program to implement that agenda, and prepare reports that will contribute substantively to a wider understanding of one of three areas of special interest to the NEA: 1. The Arts, Health, and Social/Emotional Well-Being a. Therapeutic Approaches and Benefits b. Non-Therapeutic Approaches and Benefits 2. The Arts, Creativity, Cognition, and Learning 3. The Arts, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation We anticipate that a sustained engagement with these topic areas, and with the corresponding research questions we frame below, will have distinctive benefits not only for the arts community, but also for sectors such as healthcare, education, and business or management.

Description

In accordance with 10 USC §2192, Improvement of education in technical fields: general authority regarding education in science, mathematics, and engineering, the National Defense Education Program (NDEP) K-16 Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and outreach is seeking to strategically implant a vehicle to identify and support stronger guidelines for conducting K-16 education and outreach programs. The Department of Defense seeks to diversify its portfolio of support and increase focus on efforts that support the Force of the Future, and align with the Federal and DoD STEM strategies. Enhancing the permeability of ideas into DoD's workforce, especially the STEM workforce, through alliances with academia, industry and various non-traditional partners in STEM should deliver far-reaching sustainable and scalable programs and partnerships. While aligning with the DoD STEM mission, “to attract, inspire, and develop exceptional STEM talent across the education continuum to enrich our current and future DoD workforce to meet defense technological challenges,” the Defense STEM Education Consortium (DSEC) should collaboratively work with the Government to provide a cohesive strategy to meet the vision, roles, and goals outlined in the DoD STEM Strategic Plan (https://www.acq.osd.mil/rd/publications/docs/DoD_STEM_Strategic_Plan_201...). The goals and objectives of this strategic plan will support: (1) building and maintaining not only DOD’s, but the nation’s STEM pipeline; (2) reducing the number of STEM professionals who choose to leave DoD; and (3) keeping DoD competitive with industry and other countries also seeking STEM talent. The fundamental elements under the DSEC Cooperative Agreement (COA) are: (1) Consortium Management; (2) Program Evaluations: Data Collection, Analysis and Reports; (3) Outreach/Communications; (4) STEM Alumni Management; and (5) Strategic Outreach Initiatives. These fundamental elements are the essential elements of the consortium that will support the DoD STEM education and outreach goals.
