The majority of the Head Start and Early Head Start grant opportunities for programs on the recompetition list linked to CFR 1307 are scheduled to be released today according to the grants forecast section of the webpage.

There is some question about whether there will be a delay – the Ohio situation, at least, is pending.  As of this 8:30 this morning, this is the official schedule and if we learn anything else we will post an update.

Also, please note that it is possible to export the list from the grants forecast to Excel and we definitely recommend that.  The web-based database remains cumbersome.

If your agency has activated a ‘trigger’ and is facing recompetition – you might want or need guidance. In most cases, we can help you get through this critical period and, if we can’t, we’ll certainly help you find the support you need.

If you are a delegate agency thinking about responding to the upcoming RFP to continue to serve your children and families on your own, but are unsure about grant writing, give us a call.

If you are a community based, solid organization with your heart and management practices in the right place and think could do just as well or better on behalf of young children and their families, we can help you think that through and move forward if you’d like. Call us: 703-299-6570 or email [email protected]
