Early Comprehensive Childhood Systems Impact (ECCS Impact)
ECCS Impact funding is designed to enhance early childhood systems building and demonstrate improved outcomes in population-based children's developmental health and family well-being indicators using a Collaborative Innovation and Improvement Network (CoIIN) approach. The CoIIN model will serve as a platform for collaborative learning and quality improvement toward common goals and benchmarks.
The overall goal of the program is for participating communities to show a 25% increase from baseline in age appropriate developmental skills among their community's three year old children within the first 5 years of the program.
Grant recipients will identify one to five place-based communities within their state or territory to participate in the network. At least one of the identified communities should be a community receiving state and/or tribal Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting services. Applicants will receive priority points if one of the communities selected to participate is a Promise Zone and/or Rural IMPACT community.
Public or private entities, including Indian tribes or tribal organizations, faith-based, and community-based organizations are eligible to apply.
