About EHS-CCP In Depth
In January of 2014, Congress appropriated $500 million to expand the number and quality of early learning slots for infants and toddlers.
Make no mistake, this funding opportunity is monumental. With enormous potential to advance early access to early learning, it also carries significant challenges and risk.
Through Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships (EHS-CCP) grants or new Early Head Start grants, community based child care can join in the expanded opportunities as partners of the Early Head Start grantees.
Foundations for Families supports the highest aspirations of this initiative: to ensure that more infants and toddlers – particularly the most vulnerable – have access to the highest quality early learning.
