Participation in high quality early childhood programs can effectively support the school readiness of at-risk children. With Virginia’s recent award of a three-year federal Preschool Development Grant (PDG B-5) and Governor Northam’s proposed $95 million in new early childhood investments, a variety of potential opportunities exist for communities to expand and improve early education for at-risk children while strengthening their local early childhood system.
In order to help communities increase the opportunities for young children and their families to benefit, communities will have the opportunity to apply to participate in PDG B-5 and/or Mixed Delivery. *
*The Mixed Delivery opportunity described here is pending current state legislative/budget decisions.
Below is the updated timeline for PDG B-5 as of April 7, 2020. Click here for memorandum announcing updates regarding timeline for applications.
