Children’s earliest experiences are built into their bodies – shaping the brain’s architecture and creating the foundation for future health and learning. Everything a child experiences in his or her earliest years impacts that child’s opportunity to fulfill his or her potential. When we provide young children with a sturdy foundation, we create a healthier and stronger North Carolina for generations to come.

The Preschool Development Grant Birth through Five (PDG B-5) is a competitive federal grant designed to support the healthy development of young children through three major activities:

  • Maximizing family engagement in their children’s early learning;
  • Improving transitions for children and families across child care and elementary schools; and
  • Improving the overall quality of early learning that young children experience. 

The PDG B-5 grant award is $40.2 million ($13.4 million per calendar year) to the NC Department of Health and Human Services, beginning January 2020 and ending December 2022. For more information, read the press release on the award.
