Early Head Start Expansion and Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership Grants - Burnett, Clark, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor and Washburn Counties, Wisconsin

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) - Administration for Children and Families (ACF) - Office of Head Start (OHS)


Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #206767

Grant Description

Grant to a Wisconsin nonprofit or for-profit organization, public agency, or faith-based organization in an eligible region for programs to provide high-quality care and education for children from birth to age five. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funded programs must serve Burnett, Clark, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor, and Washburn Counties.

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces the availability of funding to be competitively awarded for the purpose of expanding access to high-quality, comprehensive early learning services for low-income infants, toddlers, and their families. This NOFO solicits applications from public or private non-profit organizations, including faith-based organizations or for-profit organizations, that seek to provide a high-quality, comprehensive program, in a manner that ensures continuous services and seamless transitions for children and families residing in Burnett, Clark, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor and Washburn Counties, Wisconsin.

Funds annually will be available to provide Head Start and/or Early Head Start services to eligible children and their families in Burnett, Clark, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor and Washburn Counties, Wisconsin. This dollar amount includes base funding for use in program operations, staffing, materials, equipment, facilities, etc., and training and technical assistance (T/TA) funding. The appropriate use of T/TA funds for the purposes of improving program quality and helping prepare children to succeed in school are described in section 648 and section 645A(g) of the Head Start Act.

ACF, within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), will consider applications for Early Head Start-Child Care (EHS-CC) Partnerships, non-partnership Early Head Start (EHS) Expansion, or applications that include a combination of both.

High-quality infant and toddler care is particularly important, and often is lacking, in economically-distressed communities. Therefore, ACF reserves the right to prioritize funding for qualified applicants that propose services in census tracts designated as Qualified Opportunity Zones.

For additional program information, please see p. 5 of the FOA in Attached Files below.

Faith-based and community organizations that meet the eligibility requirements are eligible to receive awards under this funding opportunity. Faith-based organizations may apply for this award on the same basis as any other organization, as set forth at and, subject to the protections and requirements of 45 CFR Part 87 and 42 U.S.C. 2000bb et seq., ACF will not, in the selection of recipients, discriminate against an organization on the basis of the organization's religious character, affiliation, or exercise.

Recipients under this grant program may opt to transfer a portion of substantive programmatic work to other organizations through subaward(s). The prime recipient must maintain a substantive role in the project.

Ineligible:

ACF does not fund awards where the role of the applicant is primarily to serve as a conduit for passing funds to other organizations unless that arrangement is authorized by statute. An award recipient or any subrecipient may not use grant funds, whether directly or indirectly, to support or oppose union organizing.

Applications from individuals (including sole proprietorships) and foreign entities are not eligible and will be disqualified from competitive review and funding under this funding opportunity.

For funding restrictions, see pp. 55-56 of the FOA in Attached Files below.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for electronic application submission is 11:59 pm ET on January 24, 2023.

Organizations must have an active System for Award (SAM) registration which provides a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI), and Grants.gov account to apply for grants. Creating a Grants.gov account can be completed online in minutes, but SAM registration may take several weeks. Therefore, an organization’s registration should be done in sufficient time to ensure it does not impact the entities ability to meet required application submission deadlines.

ACF requires electronic submission of applications at Grants.gov. Paper applications received from applicants that have not been approved for an exemption from required electronic submission will be disqualified from competitive review and funding under this funding opportunity.

Applicant entities may submit only one application per service area, regardless of how they choose to apply. ACF will review only one application for a service area from any applicant.

Recipients must, unless a waiver is granted, contribute 20 percent of the total cost of the program from non-federal funds. The non-federal share may be met by cash or in-kind contributions, although applicants are encouraged to meet their match requirements through cash contributions.
