Today, OHS released the EHS-Child Care Partnership funding opportunity announcement (FOA).

For classification purposes (and searching for it when you aren’t on your own computer with your own bookmarks):
The CFDA number is 93.600
The Opportunity Number is HHS-2015-ACF-OHS-HP-0814: Early Head Start Expansion and EHS-Child Care Partnership Grants
The Opening Date is 6/6/2014
The Closing Date is 8/20/2014

This is the blurb from grants.gov:

“The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces 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. ACF solicits applications from public entities, including states, or private non-profit organizations, including community-based or faith-based organizations, or for-profit agencies that meet eligibility for applying as stated in section 645A of the Head Start Act. For more information, interested applicants should visit http://eclkc.ohs.acf.hhs.gov/hslc/hs/grants/ehs-ccp. Please note that the funding opportunity number (FON) has changed to HHS-2015-ACF-OHS-HP-0814.”

After a quick initial read, we were interested to see that:

–  Applicants can apply for funds to expand their current EHS program without proposing a partnership model.  However, an initial read suggests that a priority (extra points) will be given to the 100% partnership model applicants and next priority to partial partnership model applicants (extra points, but fewer).

– Entities can only apply once per service area.  No hedging your bets.

– The non-federal share is 20%.

– A significant number of all proposed slots must be subsidized slots.

But, what really caught our eye was the state allocation information.  The funding amounts listed at the end of the FOA represent projected base funding (not T/TA).
