The purpose of the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Impact (ECCS Impact) program is to enhance early childhood systems building and demonstrate improved outcomes in population-based children’s developmental health and family well-being indicators using a Collaborative Innovation and Improvement Network (CoIIN) approach. An additional goal of the ECCS Impact grant is the development of collective impact expertise, implementation and sustainability of efforts at the state, county and community levels.
The overall aim of this project is that within 60 months, the identified community will show a 25% increase from baseline in age appropriate developmental skills among their community’s 3 year old children. Secondary aims include:
