The Administration for Children and Families has funding available for a cooperative agreement to support a grantee as a trusted source for research and policy related information for the child care and early education field. The grantee will establish and operate a website for the Child Care and Early Education Research Connections database (hereafter referred to as “Research Connections”). The interactive website (http://www.researchconnections.org) will house a comprehensive and up-to-date database of resources derived from rigorous research including scholarly peer-reviewed research and ‘gray’ literature (i.e., rigorous research published as policy briefs, state and federal government reports, foundation reports, etc.) and publicly available assessment instruments relevant to child care and early education policy and practice (i.e., community based child care serving children birth through 13-years, Early Care and Education (ECE) programs, home-based child care, family child care, Head Start, public Pre-kindergarten (Pre-K), and after-school programs).

The grantee will engage in vigorous marketing of the research database; outreach to gather feedback and improve the database, the site and other products; and development of high quality products to improve utilization of the site and of the evidence base. Research Connections will collaborate to gather feedback, identify the latest research and resources available; and note research needs of the state, territory and tribal administrators of the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program and child care and early education researchers. Research Connections may pursue this information through collaboration with child care and education research organizations and agencies that promote the use of the research base to improve the quality and promote equal access to those programs; strengthen the supply of care and education to support parental employment, training and education; and inform the development and implementation of system-level approaches to coordination of program services for children and families (e.g., Child Care and Early Education Policy Research Consortium (CCEEPRC); Child Care Research and Evaluation Capacity Building Center (CCRECBC); other U.S. Department of Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Child Care and Head Start Technical Assistance Centers). In addition, the grantee will attend key meetings to pursue their goals (e.g., Office of Child Care’s (OCC) annual State and Territories Administrators Meeting (STAM); CCEEPRC annual meeting; Annual Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance System All Hands Meeting (hosted by ACF) and ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood (NRCEC)].

The site may be based on an established platform or may be newly developed. It is expected that, at the latest, the Research Connections beta site will launch by March 2021 and that the site will be fully operational on or before June 2021. The award is expected to be for a 60-month project period, with five 12-month budget periods. The ceiling for the first budget period is $1,000,000. It is expected that the 12-month budget period for each subsequent year (years 2-5) will not exceed $750,000 each.

Publishing Historical Records in Documentary Editions

Funding Opportunity Title: Publishing Historical Records in Documentary Editions
First Deadline: June 10, 2020 – Second Deadline: October 8, 2020
Funding Opportunity #: EDITIONS-202010
CFDA Numbers: 89.003
Program Office: National Archives and Records Administration

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals to publish documentary editions of historical records. Projects may focus on broad historical movements in U.S. history, such as law (including the social and cultural history of the law), politics, social reform, business, military, the arts, and other aspects of the national experience, or may be centered on the papers of major figures from American history. Whether conceived as a thematic or a biographical edition, the historical value of the records and their expected usefulness to broad audiences must justify the costs of the project.
The Commission is especially interested in projects to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. We encourage applications that use collections to examine the ideals behind the founding of the United States and the continual interpretation and debate over those ideals over the past 250 years. We welcome projects that engage the public, expand civic education, and promote understanding of the nation’s history, democracy, and culture from the founding era to the present day.
The goal of this program is to provide access to, and editorial context for, the historical documents and records that tell the American story. Applicants should demonstrate familiarity with the best practices recommended by the Association for Documentary Editing (ADE) or the Modern Language Association (MLA) Committee on Scholarly Editions .
All new projects (those which have never received NHPRC funding) must have definitive plans for publishing and preserving a digital edition which provides online access to a searchable, fully-transcribed and annotated collection of documents. New projects may also prepare print editions (including ebooks and searchable PDFs posted online) as part of their overall publishing plan, but the contents of those volumes must be published in a fully-searchable digital edition within a reasonable period of time following print publication. The NHPRC encourages projects to provide free public access to online editions. Projects that do not have definitive plans for digital dissemination and preservation in place at the time of application will not be considered.
Grants are awarded to collaborative teams (including at least two scholar-editors, in addition to one or more archivists, digital scholars, data curators, and/or other support and technical staff, as necessary) for collecting, describing, preserving, compiling, transcribing, annotating, editing, encoding, and publishing documentary source materials online and in print. Eligible documentary edition projects typically focus on original manuscript or typewritten documents, but may also include other formats, such as analog audio and/or born-digital records. Because of the focus on historical documentary sources, grants do not support preparation of critical editions of published works unless such works are just a small portion of the larger project.
This grant program does not support the production of film or video documentaries. For a comprehensive list of the Commission’s limitations on funding, please see What We Do and Do Not Fund. Applications that consist entirely of ineligible activities will not be considered.
Ongoing projects: Applicants from ongoing projects must demonstrate that they have successfully achieved the performance objectives associated with previous NHPRC awards; provide updated, current information, including a description of the new activities; describe the content and historical significance of the specific materials to be edited during the proposed grant period; show progress towards completing the edition; and justify costs in a new budget.

Award Information
A grant is for one year and for up to $175,000 per year. The Commission expects to make up to 25 grants in this category for a total of up to $3,000,000. Grants begin no earlier than January 1, 2021.
The Commission requires that grant recipients acknowledge NHPRC grant assistance in all publications, publicity, and other products that result from its support.
Eligibility
• U.S. nonprofit organizations or institutions
• U.S. colleges, universities, and other academic institutions
• State or local government agencies
• Federally-acknowledged or state-recognized Native American tribes or groups
Cost Sharing
The total costs of a project are shared between the NHPRC and the applicant organization.
The Commission provides no more than 50 per cent of total project costs in the Publishing Historical Records in Documentary Editions category. NHPRC grant recipients are not permitted to use grant funds for indirect costs (as indicated in 2 CFR 2600.101).
Cost sharing is required. The applicant’s financial contribution may include both direct and indirect expenses, in-kind contributions, non-Federal third-party contributions, and any income earned directly by the project. Indirect costs must be listed under the applicant’s cost sharing contribution.
Other Requirements
Applicant organizations must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) prior to submitting an application, maintain SAM registration throughout the application and award process, and include a valid DUNS number in their application. Details on SAM registration and requesting a DUNS number can be found at the System for Award Management website at https://sam.gov.

CFDA Numbers: 81.117
Program Office: Department of Energy – Golden Field Office

The Educational Materials for Professional Organizations Working on Efficiency and Renewable Energy Developments (EMPOWERED) funding program is a collaborative effort across EERE’s Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO), Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO), and Building Technologies Office (BTO), to provide professionals with educational materials and training resources in fields newly interacting with distributed energy resources (DER). In this program, DER includes distributed solar, like on homes and businesses, as well as efficient building technologies and sustainable transportation technologies, such as electric vehicles.

The goal of this program is to create resources that will help those on the front lines of DER adoption—like first
responders, safety officials, and building managers and owners keep up with these rapidly emerging and advancing
technologies. These professionals are at the forefront of America’s energy transition and play a role in easing adoption, ensuring safety, and reducing installation costs. Because of this, the participating EERE offices see these professionals as key to enabling understanding and acceptance of new energy technologies.

SETO, BTO, and VTO seek applicants that will create and integrate education and training materials for professionals who have significant involvement and authority over implementing solar, building, or vehicle technologies on the distribution system but who do not work primarily with these technologies. Those technologies include but are not limited to DER—like PV systems, building efficiency technologies, energy storage systems, AFV, EV—and EV infrastructure.
