Regional Partnership Grants (RPG)

West Virginia has three RPG grants. The Regional Partnership Grants provide services to improve the well-being of children and families impacted by substance use disorders. The grants implement wraparound processes, which use intense case-management techniques to ensure that each family member and the family as a whole receive tailored services to overcome trauma, recover from substance use disorder, and thrive. The primary objective of this project is to serve children and their families so that children overcome their trauma, parents recover from substance use disorder, and the family is strengthened to become a unified, happy, and healthy family. 

  • Evaluation – Marshall University is the evaluator for these projects. It conducts both a national cross site and local evaluation.  
  • Population – Children age (0-11 years old) at risk of being removed from their home due a family member being impacted by substance use/misuse. 
  • Counties Covered – Cabell, Wayne, Lincoln, Kanawha, Boone, Raleigh, Wyoming, Mason, Putnam, McDowell and Mercer 
  • Agency Partners – Bureau for Social Services, Bureau of Behavioral Health, Prestera, Children’s Home Society, FMRS, and Southern Highlands.
