Notice of a Non-Competitive One-Year Extension With Funds for State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) (H-25) Grantees.
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will be issuing a non-competitive one-year extension with funds for the current grantees of the State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Program. Up to $150,000 per grantee will be awarded over a one-year extended project period. The State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) Grant Program ensures the healthy physical, social, and emotional development of children (birth to five years of age) by supporting statewide collaborations of early childhood service providers to create a seamless system of early childhood services for young children and their families. Each ECCS grantee is an active member, and in some cases these grantees hold a leadership role in their early childhood multi-agency State teams. Together, such teams have developed Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Plans that guide the development, implementation, governance, and financing of their States' early childhood service systems. The State team activities associated with these plans, and the comprehensive systems they describe, also include the identification and implementation of early childhood systems best-practice models, as well as the development of human resources and policies to support these practices. This extension with funds will allow HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) to align its early childhood systems-building activities with HRSA's Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program, the State Advisory Councils (SACs) and other early childhood initiatives under the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Project LAUNCH, and the Department of Education's Race to the Top (RTT).

HRSA is extending funding for the ECCS grants by one year for the following reasons. MCHB has been working with leaders within HRSA involved in early childhood service systems, as well as with other early childhood experts and leaders in the field, to align its early childhood systems-building activities with early childhood investments within HRSA, including the MIECHV program, and with other Federal Government early childhood initiatives. HRSA/MCHB is focusing on the most efficient and effective use of funds to continue promoting coordinated, comprehensive early childhood systems and services for the Nation's children and families.
HRSA's MIECHV program funds evidence-based home visiting programs in 54 States and jurisdictions. Research shows that the success of such home visiting programs is dependent upon the kind of sound infrastructure that ECCS promotes and sustains. To ensure coordinated and non-duplicative HRSA program planning, as well as future early childhood systems programming, it is crucial to sustain MCHB's current systems development efforts under ECCS for one additional year while the next early childhood systems program is developed with input from stakeholders.
