Please join your fellow prevention practitioners for the July AIA meeting.  We are honored to be hearing from Kat Willard and Mollie Bailey of First Things First in Arizona.

“First Things First is Arizona’s only public funding source dedicated exclusively to early childhood, the beginning of our state’s education continuum. We invest early childhood funds in programs and services that address the development, education and health needs of children birth to age 5 (before kindergarten). We administer statewide initiatives and award regional and statewide grants through competitive RFGAs (requests for grant applications). Funds are allotted to Arizona communities based on their population of young children (birth to age 5), and emphasis placed on getting resources directly to children and families through a network of community providers. Everything we do is strategically designed to help more Arizona children arrive at kindergarten ready to succeed.”
