The main purpose of the survey is to address a lack of knowledge about the current status of the responsible fatherhood field. More specifically, the survey aims to increase knowledge by 1) defining the scope of the field, 2) examining the impact of inconsistent funding streams on the existence and range of services, and 3) assessing the extent to which programs are responding to increasing funder requests for evidence of program effectiveness. While the field has traditionally focused on employment and child support, it has since expanded into areas such as criminal justice, child welfare, and public housing. Yet little is known about how services are delivered in these various venues. Repeated federal funding cuts and the recession of 2008 have made it extremely unlikely that states would continue to fund fatherhood initiatives without federal subsidies, yet little is known about the impact on current programs and on the field overall. Finally, although the demand for research-based evidence is increasing, it is not known whether or how successfully programs have adopted measures such as logic models, management information systems, and program evaluations. Survey methods include qualitative interviews and questionnaires containing multiple choice and open ended questions. Qualitative interviews were conducted with key stakeholders from June – August, 2011. Questionnaires will be distributed in two waves from September, 2011 – April, 2012. The first wave will be sent to state agencies funding responsible fatherhood programs, and the second wave will be sent to responsible fatherhood programs.
