NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro City leaders announced a multi-million dollar grant Wednesday to help dads in the area.

The New Life Project is a federal grant that will provide fathers in North and East Nashville with skills, knowledge and support to become more positively involved in the lives of their children.
Supporters said it's just as important to educate dads as it is moms in order to maximize the health and well-being of overall families.
