Colorado Initiative Requests Proposals for Advancing the Early Childhood Workforce


The Transforming the Early Childhood Workforce in Colorado Initiative has released a Request for Proposals to fund local partnerships interested in advancing the early childhood workforce. It’s the second year of the initiative, an innovative public-private partnership including Gary Community Investments, Buell Foundation, Early Milestones Colorado, the Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado Department of Human Services. For this grant opportunity, the Initiative is collaborating with Rose Community Foundation, which will serve as the fiscal sponsor for grantmaking.

Those with innovative ideas for systemic change in workforce recruitment, retention, compensation and support are invited to apply for the Early Childhood Workforce Innovation Grants, which have an emphasis on data-informed, sustainable, systems-building efforts that address community challenges and inform broader change. An emailed intention to apply is due Febuary 1.
