  1. Hi,

    1. Great to hear, Dominique! Feel free to spread the word that we will be back in communities to talk prenatal-to-five updates and funding opportunities.

    1. Hi Floribert,

      We recommend you reach out directly to our technical assistance providers. You’ll find their emails here: Some RFPs have specific instructions on how to access technical assistance. If you tell me which RFP you are planning to apply to, I can perhaps give more guidance on where to find that information.

      There are also two COO RFPs currently open. Do you know which one you are interested in or would you like help with both?

      Thank you!
