The Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), herein announces the awarding of fifty supplemental awards in the amount of $5,733,115 to Fiscal Year (FY) 2006 Mentoring of Children of Prisoners (MCP) grantees.

Section 439 of the Social Security Act, as amended by the Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109-288) authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to award grants for the purpose of supporting the establishment or expansion and operation of community-based programs to provide one-on-one mentoring relationships between a child of incarcerated parent(s) and a caring, supportive adult mentor under the Mentoring Children of Prisoners Program (MCP).

The program is designed to reach the President's goal of establishing 100,000 mentor/mentee relationships between a Start Printed Page 57585caring adult and a young person whose parent(s) is incarcerated in a correctional facility by the end of FY 2008. This funding is requested for those grantees that have demonstrated the capacity to make quality matches and currently making significant process in reaching their match goal. One-third of the grantees have made over 50% of their three-year match goal within their first year.
