Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems

Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems

Grantees

ECCS grantees work in 47 states (all but Mississippi, Pennsylvania and South Dakota), the territories of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Palau, and Puerto Rico, as well as Washington, D.C.

All 52 projects collaborate with other early childhood systems-building efforts in their state (or territory) and have the overall goals of expanding and integrating the ECCS Initiative core components in order to reach as many children as possible.

You are encouraged to reach out to your fellow ECCS colleagues.
