The goal of the Increasing Access to Child Care for Children Experiencing Homelessness initiative is to increase access to child care assistance for children and their families experiencing homelessness in North Carolina.
In November 2018, DCDEE applied to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care for a Preschool Development Grant (PDG) for activities to strengthen North Carolina’s early childhood education system. DCDEE was notified of the $4.5 million grant award on December 31, 2018.
The states who received the initial PDG B-5 award were then eligible to apply for a renewal grant in November 2019 to further the work that began during the initial grant cycle. NC elected to apply for the renewal grant in order to continue strengthening and enhancing North Carolina’s early childhood education system. On December 31, 2019, notification was received that North Carolina is among 20 states and territories that have been awarded three-year renewal grants through the PDG B-5!
