Subject:*Data Available*: Regional Partnership Grants National Cross-Site Evaluation (RPG-2)

Regional Partnership Grants National Cross-Site Evaluation (RPG-2) The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect at Cornell University is pleased to announce the release of the dataset: Title: Regional Partnership Grants National Cross-Site Evaluation (RPG-2) Investigator(s): Strong, D., Avellar, S., Cole, R., D'Angelo, A. Dataset Number: #218 Dataset description page: https://www.ndacan.cornell.edu/datasets/dataset-details.cfm?ID=218 There is no charge to obtain this Restricted Dataset, but eligibility requirements apply. Abstract: To address the far-reaching consequences of adult substance use disorders on families and children, Congress in 2006 authorized, and in 2011 reauthorized, competitive grants to support partnerships among child welfare, substance use disorder treatment, and related organizations. The Children’s Bureau (CB) within the Administration for Children and Families, Administration on Children, Youth and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established the Regional Partnership Grant (RPG) program, and in 2017 awarded grants to 17 second-cohort (RPG-2) partnerships to implement evidence-based programs (EBPs) to meet the needs of this target population. CB funded Mathematica Policy Research, along with its subcontractor Walter R. MacDonald & Associates (WRMA), to conduct a five-year cross-site evaluation of the grantees’ RPG projects. Mathematica and WRMA designed a cross-site evaluation to address the following 7 research questions: 1. Who was involved in each RPG project and how did the partners work together? To what extent were the grantees and their partners prepared to sustain their projects by the end of the grant period? 2. Who were the target populations of the RPG projects? Did RPG projects reach their intended target populations? 3. Which EBPs did the RPG projects select? How well did they align with RPG projects’ target populations and goals? 4. What procedures, infrastructure, and supports were in place to facilitate implementation of the EBPs? 5. How were the EBPs implemented? What services were provided? What were the characteristics of enrolled participants? 6. To what extent were the RPG projects prepared to sustain their EBPs at the end of the grant period? 7. What were the well-being, permanency, and safety outcomes of children, and the recovery outcomes of adults, who received services from the RPG projects? The cross site evaluation has three main components used to answer these research questions: (1) an implementation study, (2) a partnership study, and (3) an outcomes study. Additional instructions for working with the RPG-2 data are posted on the RPG User Support page. This dataset is encouraged for use in applying for the 2019 Summer Research Institute. ________________________________ National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research (BCTR) Cornell University, 35 Thornwood Drive Suite 200 Ithaca NY 14850 Telephone: 607-255-7799 Email: NDACAN@cornell.edu Website: www.ndacan.cornell.edu Twitter: https://twitter.com/NDACAN_CU The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect is a service of the Children’s Bureau | Administration for Children and Families | U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Unsubscribe from the CMRL list
