Brookdale Foundation Relatives as Parents Program Call for State Seed Grant Initiatives
Due Date: Thursday, January 6, 2011
The Relatives as Parents Program (RAPP) was initiated in 1996. It is designed to encourage and promote the creation or expansion of services for grandparents and other relatives who have taken on the responsibility of surrogate parenting due to the absence of the parents. The program awards seed grants of $10,000 over a two-year period in three categories: local, regional, and state public agencies.
Currently RAPP provides extensive services, primarily to relative caregivers caring for children outside the foster care system, in 44 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. As part of our sponsorship of RAPP, we conduct our National Orientation and Training Conference and provide technical assistance through site bulletins, a listserv, our annual newsletter, conference calls and webchats to facilitate opportunities for networking and information exchange.
