2020 – 2023 Funding Opportunities:

WCSS extends an invitation to the community to submit funding proposals for FY2020-21. Wake County Smart Start uses a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to fund projects that help the organization achieve its overall goals.

The WCSS Board of Directors has developed a three-year Strategic Plan with four Goal Areas (click here to review the Strategic Plan). Based on the Strategic Plan, four RFPs were developed, one for each Goal Area:

Goal Area 1 – Children are in safe, supportive home environments.
Goal Area 2 – Children are in high quality care that contributes to positive child outcomes.
Goal Area 3 – Children are healthy and developmentally ready for school.
Goal Area 4 – Children and families are supported by a strong, diverse, connected and integrated early childhood system that promotes results.
