Early Childhood Initiatives Update
The Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership (EHS-CCP) grant was renewed for an additional 5 years ($17M). The program has expanded to 8 locations across the city. EHS-CCP provides comprehensive child development services to 210 at risk infants and toddlers and their families.
HDC also has a new contract with the Developmental Disabilities Council to provide training for EarlySteps providers (Louisiana’s Part C-early intervention program) and develop a community of practice for 70 early interventionists in Lafayette and Shreveport.
