The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation and the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust have released a Request for Proposal for grants to advance local- and state-level early childhood system and policy changes: Supporting Grassroots Efforts to Promote Equitable Early Childhood Outcomes. Up to 10 organizations will receive three-year, $100,000/year ($300,000 total) flexible funding grants to advance changes to early childhood policies, practices, institutions, or other components of early childhood systems. Eligible organizations for this funding opportunity are grassroots organizations led by, and serving, Black, Latino, American Indian, and other communities that have been negatively impacted by inequities in early childhood systems.
