Recently, 46 States/Territories received a Preschool Development Birth through Five (PDG B-5) Initial Grant Award effective December 31,2018 through December 30, 2019. See attached documents for lists of grantees and grantee contacts.

The PDG B-5 grants, which differ significantly from the previous Preschool Development Grants, are designed to fund states to conduct a comprehensive statewide birth through five needs assessment followed by in-depth strategic planning, while enhancing parent choice and expanding the current mixed delivery system consisting of a wide range of provider types and settings, including child care centers and home-based child care providers, Head Start and Early Head Start, state pre-kindergarten, and home visiting service providers across the public, private and faith-based sectors.

As States/Territories make their PDG B-5 applications available on their State/Territory web site, we are adding the link to those applications on our web site so that you can access those applications. Please return here periodically for additional links as they become available to us and then to you.

Also, please keep in mind that States/Territories were awarded approximately 71% of the amount they requested, if that amount was greater than $1.5M. As a result most States/Territories were required to submit a brief, revised scope to reflect work that was being scaled back or eliminated due to the less-than-requested amount of funding. (States/Territories seeking less than $1.5M received 100% of the amount requested.)
