New Timeline for Mixed Delivery Grants 2020


In March, the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation (VECF), in partnership with the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), announced a decision to revisit the timeline of upcoming deadlines for key early childhood initiatives, due to the disruption that early childhood programs, personnel, and leaders are experiencing related to the COVID-19 health and economic crises.

Today we are announcing a new timeline for Mixed Delivery grants. Given the capacity for communities to see beyond the current COVID-19 crisis, as demonstrated by the significant number of Letters of Intent (LOIs) submitted from across the state, we will proceed with an application and selection process for Mixed Delivery grants as follows:

Mixed Delivery Grant (MDG) LOI Q & A Session – June 2, 2020 (9 am), register here

Deadline for Regular Submission of MDG LOI – June 8, 2020 (5 pm)

Review of LOIs – June 9-17, 2020

Notification to Submit Full Application – June 18, 2020

Deadline for Submission of Full Application – July 28, 2020 (5 pm)

Review of Applications – July 29- Mid August , 2020

Notification of Decisions – Mid August 2020

VECF welcomes submission of any new Mixed Delivery grant LOIs. Please see the Opportunities Ahead webpage for information about how to submit a new LOI. If your community has already submitted an LOI for Mixed Delivery, no further action is needed unless you would like to make any updates to your original submitted LOI. If so, you may do so prior to the June 8 submission deadline. Please contact Robin Grossman at so that she can give you access to the MDG LOI you submitted previously.
