The Early Childhood Health funding area seeks proposals for early intervention programs that focus on developing healthy families to foster optimal growth and development of young children.
Physical and mental health have a major impact on a family’s ability to thrive. Programs should embrace the needs of the whole-child and may incorporate the health and well-being components of the two-generation approach that is central to supporting children and parents simultaneously.
Eligible programs include those that:
Programming focuses on children ages birth through age twelve and may involve parents, caregivers, health care providers, schools, shelters, early childhood programs and the overall community. Organizations exhibiting trauma-sensitive practices are preferred.
Note: Non-health related education and lifestyle programs, including physical activity and nutrition, are ineligible for funding consideration.
Individual grants may be awarded up to $25,000
