Operating Division Grant Portfolios: Administration for Children and Families (ACF)
Mission: Provides national leadership and creates opportunities for families to lead economically and socially productive lives, including helping children to develop into healthy adults and communities to become more prosperous and supportive of their members.
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) administers grant programs that promote the economic and social well-being of families, children, individuals and communities. These programs are the primary mechanisms ACF uses to achieve its major goals to: 1) empower families and individuals to increase their own economic independence and productivity; 2) encourage the development of strong, healthy and supportive communities that have a positive impact on the quality of life and development of children; 3) partner with individuals, front-line service providers, communities, American Indian tribes, native communities, states and Congress to achieve solutions which transcend traditional agency boundaries; 4) plan, reform and integrate services to improve needed access; and 5) commit to working with people with developmental disabilities, refugees and migrants to address their needs, strengths and abilities.
ACF leads the nation in improving the economic and social well-being of families, children and communities by administering mandatory and discretionary grant programs such as the national welfare-to-work program; Temporary Assistance for Needy Families; foster care; adoption assistance; Head Start; child care; child support enforcement; positive youth development programs; refugee resettlement; and services for those with developmental disabilities.
