Best Starts for Kids Community,
Thank you for showing up for the first Best Starts for Kids Virtual Open House last Wednesday! We were so excited to connect with 300 community members from across King County through 13 different community sessions and share more about upcoming funding opportunities. If you weren’t able to join us this time or would like to revisit information from the sessions, check out the slideshows and recordings at the bottom of this blog post.
Mark your calendars for the next Best Starts Virtual Open House!
Are you interested in learning more about funding opportunities that are estimated to release in April, May, and June of 2022? Save the date for the next open house on Wednesday, March 30 from 9 AM -5 PM! We plan to host virtual open houses at the beginning of each quarter to share information about upcoming funding opportunities; we’re excited to grow and strengthen each open house as we continue to learn what works well and what we can shift at each event.
