The Preschool Development Implementation Grant continues New Hampshire's efforts to better understand the current early childhood system and use those data to strengthen the system, better address the needs of vulnerable young children and their families, and help build a solid foundation to improve outcomes for NH's children, families, schools, and communities. The grant is a collaboration between UNH, the NH Departments of Education and Health and Human Services, and the Governor’s Council for Thriving Children, as well as New Hampshire’s early childhood advocates and practitioners.
The grant seeks to support New Hampshire’s vision that all families are afforded comprehensive and responsive supports, so they are healthy, learning, and thriving, now and in the future. The three-year (2020-2022), $26.8 million grant, will help to build New Hampshire’s early childhood care and education (ECCE) system to be effective, inclusive, responsive, efficient, and evidence-informed. The Preschool Development Grant is sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families (Award# 90TP0060-01-00).
