Impact Project Launches With Nine States and Territories
As part of the new Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance System, the Child Care State Capacity Building Center (SCBC) launched the Impact Project for States and Territories in March 2016. The Impact Project is designed to support States and Territories in developing their capacity to implement their early childhood (EC) projects and priorities. We are excited to announce that nine States and Territories have been selected to participate in this opportunity
These States and Territories were selected through a competitive application process. They have diverse contexts, geographies, and entry points for advancing quality and are united by their commitment to building stronger EC systems to support significant change for young children from low-income families.
