Possible IMPACT Expansion Funding - Letter of Interest

Are you looking for a program that would encourage and support continued program quality improvement?  Is your staff looking for scholarship support to continue their education?  How about annual quality awards that could be used to purchase new materials and supplies for eligible programs?  If these types of program enhancements and supports sound interesting, First 5 San Joaquin has exciting news!

Raising Quality! and First 5 San Joaquin may soon have the opportunity to expand IMPACT (Improve and Maximize Programs so All Children Thrive) funding and are developing an interest list to support the application for that funding.

IMPACT is the continuation of the Raising Quality! Race to the Top work designed to support the quality improvement in early care and education programs.  The current IMPACT funding supports 87 sites.  The potential expansion funds application will be relative to new programs interested in applying for participation. If your program is interested, please CLICK HERE to  complete Letter of Interest Form and submit to First 5 San Joaquin by noon on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at sjckids@sjgov.org .  Letters of Interest received after January 10, 2017 will be placed on a wait list.

If you are a current IMPACT participant and know of a program that might be interested in applying, please feel free to share this opportunity with them.  We appreciate your support and partnership.
