The toolkit builds on a number of field resources (listed in the Appendix) including, "Two Generation Approaches," developed for and funded by ED. The toolkit includes resources to support a 2Gen approach and is organized into four main topics: 1 Developing or expanding initiatives and priorities; 2 Developing funding announcements; 3 Providing technical assistance to existing grantees; and 4 Creating or building a research agenda for Federal 2Gen initiatives. In each section, there is information on key principles and guidance in enhancing and strengthening the 2Gen approach. The toolkit is intended to serve as a quick and easy reference with guiding questions and several checklists, tailored to a variety of staff, to embed 2Gen approaches. The toolkit ends with communication tips to share with colleagues as well as grantees. (author abstract)
