Assessing Models of Coordinated Services: A scan of state and local approaches to coordinating early care and education with other health and human services


A growing number of states and localities are working to address the many needs of families living in poverty by coordinating their services and funding streams. Recently, for example, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Preschool Development Grant Birth-to-Five (PDG B–5) program awarded funding to states and territories to plan and design a statewide coordinated system of care for young children and their families. To improve understanding of approaches to coordinating ECE with other health and human services, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) sponsored the Assessing Models of Coordinated Services (AMCS) project. This report shares findings from a national scan of existing state and local coordinated services approaches. (author abstract)
