The PQA Subcommittee will serve as the advisory body for the “Colorado Shines Brighter” $5.8 million Preschool Development Grant (PDG), which Colorado was recently awarded. The purpose of the grant is to support the state in efforts to analyze the current landscape of the early care and learning mixed delivery system and implement changes to the system that maximize high quality care and education for low income families, improve the quality of care, streamline administrative infrastructure and improve state-level
early childhood care and education funding efficiencies. For more information on the grant, please visit: www.ColoradoOfficeOfEarlyChildhood.com
The PQA Subcommittee will create a regular structure for communication on the grant, as well as an opportunity to provide feedback and share best practices on the grant’s implementation throughout 2019.
