Strengthening Organizations to Support Families & Communities


Father Engagement Capacity Building Grants

Strategies’ Father Engagement Capacity Building grants are designed to support family strengthening networks and organizations committed to improving their ability to provide leadership in the area of father engagement.

We invite fatherhood networks and organizations throughout California to apply for the Capacity Building for Fatherhood Networks & Organizations Project. Please note priority will be given to networks and agencies interested in implementing the Supporting Father Involvement (SFI) evidence based intervention.

Support to networks may include:

  • Promotion of father engagement as an approach family strengthening
  • Coordinating efforts to promote father involvement to include participation in SFI
  • Targeted outreach to fathers in the community to participate in network convening
  • Development of outreach plans and marketing materials that are inclusive of fathers

Support to organizations may include:

  • Cost associated with implementing the Supporting Father Involvement intervention groups
  • Developing evaluation plans for father engagement activities to include the SFI intervention
  • Conducting outreach events to recruit fathers to implement the SFI evidence based intervention
