Field Grant for Early Childhood
New Futures is excited to announce a new Field Grant opportunity to early childhood coalition partners and others for the 2020 Legislative session. Through our work in advocacy, we understand that the early childhood field is particularly challenged by funding restrictions, often preventing meaningful participation in policy and advocacy efforts. By providing small field grants and advocacy stipends, New Futures hopes to increase participation and engagement from regional partners, increasing the profile of early childhood issues across the state.
New Futures invites partner organizations, must be a non-for-profit entity or a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, and individuals to a submit applications. Field Grants will be awarded to support (1) Coalition Participation and (2) Individual Advocacy, to allow partners and individuals to directly participate in state level advocacy and lobbying activities around identified early childhood policy priorities.
Applications for Round 1 of Coalition Participation grants are due by 11:59PM on Dec 31, 2019. Grantees will be notified on or around January 5, 2020.
Applications for Round 2 of Coalition Participation grants are due by 11:59 PM on Feb 28, 2020. Grantees will be notified on or around March 6, 2020.
