The Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Funds (RFF) opportunity to award grant funds for Local Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) services.
Local Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies provide comprehensive services to families, providers and the community including community outreach activities and consumer education on Early Care and Education (ECE) and Out-of-School-Time (OST) programs, including referrals to families looking for ECE, including Pre-K programs and/or OST programs. CCR&Rs also provide extensive professional development services for providers including training and technical assistance, enrollment activities and coaching for the State's quality rating and improvement system, Paths to Quality. More details can be found within the RFF.
The State will be awarding nine grants, one for each of the local Service Delivery Areas (SDA). Respondents may bid on more than one SDA if desired; however, respondents must agree to provide all services to all counties within the SDA bid on.
