As parents look for last minute supplies and students pack up their backpacks to head back to school this week, we’re thinking about what educators, school staff, students, and families will be bringing to school this year as we work together to make sure school is safe, supportive, respectful, and engaging for everyone. In honor of the start of the school year, we created a Best Starts for Kids back to school packing list.

We’re thrilled to announce nine awardees for the Parenting/Caregiver Education and Support funding opportunity! With a total investment of $1,400,000 over 2.5 years, these awards will support community organizations delivering community centered, relationship-based support through information and services provided to parents of children birth to age 5.
Forty years of collective experience has shown that high-quality, community-based support during pregnancy, birth, and early parenting saves lives. The struggle for equity and the wellbeing of our children begins before birth. This is urgent and there is no time to waste.
