The project began in 1994 with a grant from the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau. This grant served 40 families in the Early Intervention and Katie Beckett programs. The Answers4Families.org project (formerly the Nebraska Network for Children & Families) was extended in 1996 by a grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce TIIAP program which created the Partnership IDEAS Network. Since 1999, the Answers4Families project has been funded by the agencies named under “Important Partners” (listed below). Answers4Families provides information for families and consumers so that they have options based on what each family or individual needs.
Answers4Families.org is a project of the Center on Children, Families, and the Law at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and is supported by funding from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services: Aging and Disability Services, the Office of Protection and Safety, and the Office of Family Health; and the Nebraska Department of Education - Early Development Network. To learn more about our project partners, please visit our Important Partners page.
