The Office of Family Assistance (OFA) sponsored a site exchange series during late spring and summer 2009. During these two- to three-day exchanges, a "host" grantee--working with OFA's technical assistance team --designed a site visit and learning session for a small group of visiting grantees. Site exchanges focused on different types of community-based partnerships that Healthy Marriage grantees have formed to better engage various high-priority populations such as couples, youth and young adults, and low-income families. In support of the demonstration grantees' efforts to strengthen family relationships and improve child wellbeing, OFA sponsored a series of peer-to-peer site exchanges designed to advance the fields of healthy marriage and responsible fatherhood. The site exchanges--a unique form of grantee-to-grantee technical assistance in which participants build from the successful practices of their peers by observing programs and procedures firsthand--focused on key partnerships grantees formed to engage high-priority populations in their programs.(Author abstract modified)
