The Virginia Early Childhood Foundation (VECF), in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), is pleased to share with you the official Request for Proposals (RFP) and instructions for applying for the 2019 Mixed-Delivery Preschool Grant Program. The grant program provides Virginia communities the unique opportunity to field-test strategies and solutions to barriers that have prevented all eligible children from participating in the Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI). Grantees will promote flexible public-private partnerships to increase the proportion of preschoolers served in private child care sites, demonstrating community-driven collaboration and shared decision-making among education leaders.

Completed applications are due by 5 p.m. on November 9, 2018, and will be submitted through an online grant process. Additional details about the FY19 Mixed-Delivery Preschool grants, including grant priorities, eligibility requirements, and award amounts can be found in the Grant Announcement.
