Assistance from Stokes County Partnership for Children

Cindy Tuttle, Executive Director of Stokes Partnership for Children, would like for anyone who has an interest in receiving funding from their Smart Start Program review the following information. This is a great program and I hope everyone will take time and review it. Our children are our future and we need to help them get off to the best start possible:

Smart Start Request for Proposals (RFP) Stokes Partnership for Children, Inc. wants to fund acceptable programs, which relate to young children (birth through age five) for fiscal year 2010-2011. Programs should help ensure that all of Stokes County’s young children enter kindergarten healthy and ready to succeed. Proposals will be accepted in the areas of family support, health, and early care and education. Funding priority will be given to programs that will result in specific outcomes. See for details.

The availability of Smart Start funds is contingent on the final budget adopted by the NC General Assembly for the 2010–2011 fiscal year.

Individuals, organizations or agencies interested in seeking Smart Start funding should obtain details and attend one mandatory grant workshop, to be held at Stokes Partnership for Children, either on Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. or Wednesday, October 14, 2009, at 9:00 a.m. Please call to register. All proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. Friday, December 11, 2009. For details, contact Stokes Partnership for Children at (336) 985-2676.

RFP packets became available on-line yesterday both in a hard copy format and electronically.
