School of Social Work researchers, including SDRG’s Margaret Kuklinski, receive grant to develop national center to engage and empower foster youth.

October 20, 2021

Researchers at the School of Social Work are part of a new consortium that received a five-year, $20 million grant to help develop a national center to engage and empower foster youth ages 12 to 20. The goal is to give the youth an active role when decisions are made about their care, including reuniting them with their birth families or placing them in other legally recognized and permanent arrangements. The $2.6 million award to the School will be used to measure the impact of the national effort.
