Special Projects

Special Projects are among the Commission's more flexible funding streams. These one-time projects, which are capped at a maximum of $25,000, must respond to an identified community need that relates to any priority area outlined in the Commissions Strategic Plan (children are physically, emotionally and socially healthy, are ready to learn, have access to affordable, high quality childcare, improved systems of care) or other topics related to improving the health and well-being of children ages 0-5 and their families.

Community members interested in applying for Special Projects funding for their agency must work with the Commissioner representing their district to bring a proposal forward. The agency must have an identified partnering agency with which they will work to leverage funds for a more comprehensive project. If agreeable, the Commissioner will forward the proposal to staff for review/evaluation by the Special Projects proposal review panel.
