Early Head Start - Child Care (EHS-CC) Partnership Opportunity in New York State
In 2014, Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announced the availability of approximately $500 million to be competitively awarded for the purpose of expanding access to high-quality, comprehensive services to low-income infants and toddlers and their families through Early Head Start - Child Care (EHS-CC) Partnerships or through the expansion of Early Head Start services.
In February 2016, ACF announced an increase of $135 million to support additional EHS-CC Partnership programs. This $135 million grant increase will allow new or existing Early Head Start programs to partner with local child care centers and family child care providers serving infants and toddlers from low-income families. The increase will be available within each State based on the number of young children in poverty. This new funding announcement was posted on June 24, 2016. Applications are due by August 24, 2016.
Under EHS-CC Partnerships, new or existing Early Head Start grantees have partnered with regulated center-based or family child care or group family child care providers who agree to meet the Head Start Program Performance Standards. The resulting partnerships have allowed programs to leverage their funds to provide more high quality early learning slots in their community.
This continues to be a great opportunity for New York to raise the quality of infant and toddler care for the children who are most at risk. For more information, we have compiled the following list of resources:
