Trauma-Interventions for Children and Youth in Foster Care with Complex Mental, Behavioral, and Physical Health Needs
The Children’s Bureau seeks trauma-informed interventions to address trauma in children and youth with complex mental, behavioral, and health conditions. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) supports projects to implement interventions that are culturally and developmentally responsive, achieve demonstrable improvements in well-being for children and youth, and share lessons learned. CB will make two awards for up to 36 months each. These demonstration projects will implement and evaluate innovative trauma-informed programming. The focus is on services for children and youth with complex needs who are in foster care. Services include: Evidence-based clinical services, foster parent training and curricula, volunteer support services for foster parents, positive biological and birth family engagement, enrichment activities for children and youth, and trauma-informed systems work.
