This report provides a detailed snapshot of the five Fatherhood Community Access Program (FCAP) grantees funded from 2006 through 2011, including an analysis of successes and challenges with particular emphasis on the advantages of this innovative program model. Together, these five grantees provided seed funding to serve more than 50,000 fathers nationwide, a broad reach across many regions of the United States. Representatives of these large lead agencies offered candid assessments of the model and provided a rich description of sub-awardees and their work. Looking to the future, the report recommends a continued focus on this program model in the years ahead with several suggestions for improvement. While the bulk of federal fatherhood grants -- provided to medium- to large-size agencies -- ensure a nationwide focus for the program, initiatives such as FCAP can reach hard-to-serve fathers while "growing" the field through effective development of small, community-based organizations.
