-Illuminate is seeking proposals for a skilled and collaborative partner that will support Illuminate Colorado with the Colorado Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (CO-ECCS): Health Integration Prenatal-to-Three (P-3) project with equitable processes in the project activities and expert guidance in the development of a P-3 Early Childhood Health Equity Action Plan. This proposal’s initial budget is not to exceed $20,000. The deadline to submit proposals is at 5 p.m. MT on Friday, September 23rd, 2022.
The Colorado Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (CO-ECCS): Health Integration Prenatal-to-Three project is the initiative resulting from a five-year grant awarded to the Colorado Department of Early Childhood (CDEC) in August 2022. Funds were awarded to Colorado to advance the infrastructure, capacity, equity and sustainability of Colorado’s maternal and early childhood systems of care among prenatal to three-year-old (P-3) populations to achieve the vision that “All children are valued, healthy and thriving and have equal access to services, supports and resources” in Colorado.
It is preferred that respondents demonstrate knowledge and experience with statewide maternal health systems, early childhood systems, health equity (i.e. social determinants of health, disparities in data, structural racism), equitable practices in data collection, analysis, and disaggregation, and engaging lived experience experts and constituents.
