Grant Alert: Early Education Partnerships to Expand Protective Factors for Children with Child Welfare Involvement
The purpose of this grant is to support school-based initiatives to implement multi-disciplinary interventions building on protective factors for children who are at risk of child abuse and neglect or are currently in the child welfare system. Applications will represent viable partnerships that include commitments from child welfare and early childhood (e.g., Head Start, Early Head Start, State Pre-K) and may involve health and mental health organizations.
These 17-month infrastructure building grants will improve collaboration between early childhood and child welfare programs with the goal of maximizing the number of children involved in the child welfare system who are enrolled in early childhood programs. Deadline is July 25, 2011.
