National Center on Early Head Start Child Care Partnerships (EHS-CCP)

The National Center on Early Head Start Child Care Partnerships (NCEHS-CCP) is jointly funded by the Office of Head Start (OHS) and the Office of Child Care (OCC). Its purpose is to support the effective implementation of the new Early Head Start Child Care (EHS-CC) Partnerships. NCEHS-CCP will help grantees deliver high-quality, comprehensive services to low-income infants, toddlers, and their families.

NCEHS-CCP will do this by providing training and technical assistance (T/TA) and other resources to federal staff, OHS and OCC T/TA providers, Head Start state and national collaboration offices, and Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) administrators. The goal is to ensure all are equipped to meet the needs of new EHS-CC Partnership grantees.
