Child Signature Program (CSP) Request for Application #2

Child Signature Program (CSP) RFA #2

Readiness Assessment and Quality Improvement
(Funding term July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2015)

CSP 2 is designed to provide all 58 counties the opportunity to increase quality in early learning programs serving the highest risk children ages 0 to 5. CSP 2 does not require matching funds from counties.

CSP 2 focuses on providing quality improvement support through training and technical assistance to local centers to bring them up to the quality levels of classrooms participating in CSP 1. CSP 2 counties will complete a Readiness Assessment on each participating center and classroom, and collect data to determine levels of strength, identify areas for improvement, and engage in training opportunities designed to advance quality to a higher level throughout the term of the program. The requirements for CSP 2 are described in the documents below.
