PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main purpose of Human Services Research Partnership Puerto Rico (HSRPPR) is to promote effective research and the development of a culture and practice of evidence-based policy making on low-income families and children in Puerto Rico. Under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration of Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) and the leadership of the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico Metropolitan Campus (IAUPR-MC) the project brings together key stakeholders from academia, government agencies, non-profit organizations and providers, philanthropic institutions and the private sector to develop a multi-stakeholder partnership to advance research, focusing on low-income families and children. The project will result in a needs assessment and identification of successful approaches and best practices to improve self-sufficiency among poor families and children in Puerto Rico.


The following Request for Proposals provides an opportunity for local researchers and academic scholars working on low- income families and children to produce research on a range of issues related to this important population segment and to fill existing knowledge gaps. The research paper outcomes will be an excellent means to critically examine how policy and practice relate to each other and will provide a comprehensive analysis and understanding of the living conditions, needs, and challenges faced by low- income families in Puerto Rico, particularly participants of TANF and Head Start programs.
