Apply Now: Think Babies™ NC Re-Releases Leadership Community Micro-Grant

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Communities across North Carolina are invited to apply for a Think Babies™ NC Leadership Community Micro-Grant to increase education and awareness among the public and policymakers of the proposed policies and strategies in the Prenatal-to-3 Policy Roadmap. The goal of the micro-grant is to build upon what so many communities are already doing: convening on behalf of young children, engaging with community members and families, and interacting with elected officials. 

Each community selected will:

  1. Form a team of prenatal-to-age-three stakeholders that must include underrepresented populations, such as parents of young children, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)-led organizations, early childhood educators, and other community members.
  2. Attend two virtual information sessions on the Prenatal-to-3 Policy Roadmap and select an area(s) of particular interest to focus on in their conversations with policymakers.
  3. Host one to three events to connect with policymakers about the selected issues.

Micro-grants will be issued in the amount of $5,000 – $10,000 dollars.

A link to the micro-grant application can be found here. A list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) can be found here. A Q&A webinar will be held on March 10 for more information.

Applications are due on March 25th and applicants will be notified by April 11th.
