Due to the incorrect submission date in the original Summary Notice, applications will be accepted through 5:00 p.m., Friday, March 22, 2019.
Purpose of the RFA: DCDEE was recently awarded funds through the Preschool Development Grant B-5 (PDG B-5). PDG B-5 grants were issued to states in order to facilitate collaboration among early childhood care and education (ECE) programs to better serve children and families. This RFA relates to PDG Activity 1, in supplying information for a required statewide Needs Assessment.
Description: By 6/10/19, the Contractor will gather information on publicly available ECE data and will submit a preliminary report by 6/26/19 to be included in the statewide Birth-5 Needs Assessment report written by another DCDEE contractor. The Contractor will also use survey results to make recommendations for ECE information to be added to the NC Early Childhood Integrated Data System, and to inventory available sources for measures of ECE outcomes included in the NC Early Childhood Action Plan.
In November 2018, DCDEE submitted an application to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care, for a Preschool Development Grant (PDG) for activities to strengthen North Carolina’s early childhood education system. The grant will fund a comprehensive statewide needs assessment and planning process for the state’s early learning system, support family outreach and engagement efforts, and provide infant-toddler teachers with training and resources.
