About Us

Our History: In 2019, in partnership with the Michigan Office of Child Support, the University of Michigan School of Social Work received a grant from the Fatherhood Research & Practice Network (FRPN).  The Michigan Action Plan for Father Involvement (MAP-FI) was created to explore ways of expanding support for father involvement and to guide the establishment of permanent structures for improving policies and programs that benefit fathers and their families.  


To create and implement a comprehensive action plan promoting healthy and engaging relationships between Michigan children and their fathers. 


Michigan's children with a father-fueled future.
