District of Columbia Preschool Development Grant Birth through Five (PDG B-5) Grant Competition


In 2018, the District of Columbia won a $10.6 million Preschool Development Grant, Birth to Five Grant (PDG B-5) from the Office of Child Care, Administration for Children and Families, US Department of Health and Human Services. This funding, administered by OSSE on behalf of the District, will be strategically used to create a more efficient, responsive and coordinated B-5 mixed delivery system that particularly meets the needs of vulnerable children and families. The PDG B-5 funded work has centered around five areas of work and an evaluation: a District-wide needs assessment and District-wide strategic plan, maximizing family choice and knowledge, sharing best practices and improving quality. Collectively, these efforts will improve the quality of early learning environments by strengthening and aligning evidence-based practices used within the B-5 cross-sector early childhood mixed-delivery system.
