Scaling What Works

These awards support a broad range of community partners as they address the unique needs of their families and providers. While individual grantee outcomes will look different across the state, communities will be sharing successes and lessons learned so that the overall impact will be a stronger statewide early childhood care and education system. The Children’s Cabinet is engaging closely with grantees as they implement approaches, both to understand what is working and to identify and help work through challenges.
