The Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network: A National Technical Assistance Center,* is funded through a five-year cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Community Living (ACL). Generations United will be coordinating the work of five partners, the National Caucus and Center on Black Aging, the National Indian Child Welfare Association, USAging, ZERO TO THREE, and Child Trends. A diverse steering committee of the nation’s leading experts on kinship and grandfamilies, including caregivers from the GRAND Voices Network, will also support the Network.
“The National Technical Assistance Center on Kinship and Grandfamilies is an important new source of support for kin raising children. Child Trends is excited to serve as the Center’s evaluation partner, helping ensure that these families have ready access to effective supports as they provide essential love and care to millions of children across the country.”
– Carol Emig, President, Child Trends
