Hello!  There is an excellent, free opportunity for your community's early  childhood professionals to learn how to apply for federal stimulus funds for  Early Head Start.  Many of you serve on committees or have partnerships  with a variety of community groups focused on early childhood care and  education. Please let your early childhood colleagues know about the free  webinar described below.  
    These funds are for public or private non-profit organizations, including  faith-based organizations or for-profit organizations, and must be used to  "support the enrollment of additional children and families as well as  create new teaching and other positions in Early Head Start programs."

Subject: Early Head Start Webinar


Dear Early Childhood Council Colleagues:    

The Oregon Community Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, Ford  Family Foundation, and Children’s Institute are co-sponsoring a webinar  on June 9 for organizations that are interested in the new Early Head Start  funds that are available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.     

Oregon has been allocated $5.7 million in expanded Early Head  Start funds, but organizations must apply through a competitive process to  receive the funds. The RFP was issued a few weeks ago, and applications are due  July 9.  (See the federal website http://eclkc.ohs.acf.hhs.gov/hslc/Early%20Head%20Start  for more information.)  This is a wonderful opportunity to expand Early  Head Start services and partnerships in Oregon, and we want to make sure that interested  Oregon organizations have the information they need to put together strong  applications.     

Mary Foltz, Developmental Consultant at the Early Childhood  Training Center at PSU, will be the webinar presenter. It is free of charge and  open to all. The information will be of interest to those who are planning to  apply for federal funds this summer as a lead or partner organization, as well  as anyone considering Early Head Start services in the future. The Obama  Administration has signaled its intent to propose additional Early Head Start  expansions in the coming years.    

Attached is a Save the Date flyer that you can forward as you see  fit. We have sent it out already through the Head Start Association, local  commissions, and Healthy Start and Relief Nursery networks.  We are also  sharing the flyer with the child care R&R system. We will have more  information next week about how to register, and I will forward that to you, as  well.    

Please let me know if you have questions!    

Thanks –    

Mary Louise
