Description:

The Administration for Children and Families
(ACF), Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) invites eligible
applicants to submit competitive grant applications for special
improvement projects, which further the national child support mission,
vision, and goals. For FY 2005, OCSE is looking for projects that
reflect the goals of the new FY 2005-2009 strategic plan including the
goals that all children have parentage established; and all children in
IV-D (child support) cases have support orders established, have medical
coverage and receive financial support from parents as ordered. The
last goal of the strategic plan is that the IV-D program will be
efficient and responsive in its operations. Applications will be
screened and evaluated as indicated in this program announcement.
Awards will be contingent upon the outcome of the competition and the
availability of funds. For FY 2005, approximately $1.8 million is
available for all priority areas. A non-Federal match is not required.

under Priorities 2, 4 and 5 may run through July 31, 2007, for a period
