fy2014 fy2015 assessment grant purpose
FY2014/FY2015 Assessment Grant: Purpose
  • Given the high demand for child screening and assessment to support MKEA, UPK and the QRIS, EEC will be funding an FY14 Assessment Grant. The use of child screening and assessment systems in preschool and after-school settings is an important method to support developmentally appropriate individualized teaching and is an integral piece of high quality programming.
  • Through this competitive Grant, EEC will award grants to one or more entities who will design, deliver and coordinate training to support the implementation of assessment systems. The vendor(s) will also coordinate with Educator and Provider Support (EPS) grantees and Readiness Center Grantees to ensure locally that programs engaged in formative assessment have access to and are being trained to integrate screening and assessment into their programs.
are you eligible to apply
Are YOU eligible to apply?
  • This is a competitive grant. Only entities that are able to provide the required services outlined in this grant application are eligible to apply. EEC expects to award funds to one to three vendors that are able to provide services to either the entire Commonwealth or large portions of the state (portions of the state to be determined by the applications that are submitted). EEC’s preference is to award one grant to a vendor that will provide services throughout the entire Commonwealth.
funding and distribution of grants
Funding and Distribution of Grants
  • EEC estimates that up to $1,383,256 will be available for funding this GRANT APPLICATION through June 30, 2015 with both state and RTTT-ELCG funding.
    • In total, up to $700,000 will be funded through state funds and up to $683,256 will be funded through RTTT-ELCG funds.
    • EEC anticipates funding a third year of this grant at an amount as yet undetermined. However, all funding is subject to State and Federal budget allotment and appropriation.
    • EEC reserves the right to set aside a portion of this grant for later use. Should additional funds become available, EEC reserves the right to make additional awards to successful bidders based on the responses received, identified needs, and /or the best value to the Commonwealth.
    • RTTT-ELCG funds must be tracked separately from state funding.
  • EEC may fund a successful bidder’s entire proposal or may select to fund only those services that best meet EEC’s needs and that reflect EEC’s strategic direction and priorities. EEC anticipates issuing an amendment each subsequent year of the grant to modify and/or further define the requirements so that they continue to reflect EEC’s priorities and an updated needs assessment.
