Projects to Address the Sudden and Prolonged Effect of the Economic Downturn on the IV-D Caseload and Program Operations

Friday, July 31, 2009

  • Administration for Children and Families
  • Department of Health and Human Services

The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) intends to award up to $1,200,000 for 17-month projects to the State Title IV-D agencies or the umbrella agencies of the IV-D program. These 17-month grants are to address immediate needs of the IV-D program due to the economic downturn. Projects should address immediate needs but should also serve as a means to strengthen the program's infrastructure for the long term.


Below are examples of initiatives that may be undertaken through a grant to address immediate needs and/or strengthen the program infrastructure. These are intended to be illustrative and are not priorities or required activities.

Establishing or Enhancing Partnerships

Developing or expanding partnerships and collaborations with the goal of attaining employment for the general NCP population in the IV-D caseload or for those with special needs/barriers to employment.

Using partnerships and collaborations with organizations that develop online legal information, automated forms, and other systems to improve the process and experience for those who represent themselves (pro se).

Collaboration projects with local veterans organizations to address the needs of veterans with IV-D child support orders.
