Grantees will receive training, ongoing technical assistance, professional development opportunities, and a $10,000 award. Any non-profit agency serving young children and their families is eligible to apply.

Background

With the launch of a state office in 2020, Help Me Grow SC is establishing a statewide network that will build capacity among communities to provide access to services for young children and their families. To help build this network, Help Me Grow SC is announcing the dates for its second round of network grants to help community organizations address disparities in accessing services and improve universal access to developmental and behavioral health screening for young children.

Four selected recipients will each receive $10,000 to assist in establishing, enhancing and maintaining a network of community partners providing child development services and resources to local families and community members. These organizations will be the first members of Help Me Grow SC’s statewide network and will work collaboratively with HMG to promote early development health.

Organizations eligible for Help Me Grow SC’s network grants include any South Carolina community-based, nonprofit organization that serves children from birth to age five and their families. Organizations should serve a minimum of a single county, with multi-county service preferred.
