Network Partner Grant

Help Me Grow SC Opens Applications for Network Partner Grants

The SC Infant Mental Health Association and the Help Me Grow SC affiliate are seeking partners interested in working to promote the healthy development of children birth through age 5. Our Network Partner Grants program will award three grants in April 2023. Partners will join a growing statewide network working to improve universal developmental screening access and strengthen connections to community-based programs and services that promote child health and family well-being. 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.


With the launch of a state office in 2020, Help Me Grow SC is established a statewide network that works together to build capacity among communities to provide access to services for young children and their families. The Network Partner Grant program helps community organizations address disparities in accessing services and improve universal access to developmental and behavioral health screening for young children.

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 join 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.
