PARENT-CHILD HOME PROGRAM EXPANSION (APPLICATIONS DUE AT NOON SEPTEMBER 18)

United Way of King County is excited to announce the release of the funding announcement for Parent-Child Home Program expansion. The Parent-Child Home Program zeroes in on the preparation gap by supporting parents during the crucial early years of their children’s development. Learn more about this evidence-based model at United Way of King County or at Parent-Child Home Program. To learn more about the PCHP expansion through United Way, King County Best Starts for Kids, and the City of Seattle see the BSK blog.

ATTENTION: A CHANGE TO THE PCHP APPLICATION WAS MADE ON SEPTEMBER 12TH.

In response to community questions and feedback, funding partners for the Parent-Child Home Program expansion have modified application question 13 to ensure there is flexibility around cost per family.

Documents available on eCImpact (budget template tool, Word doc of application questions, and Application Instructions) have been updated accordingly.

The FAQ is also available on eCImpact and was updated 9/12.
