Through a partnership with Boone County, Cradle to Career Alliance is one of 8 counties and 29 communities selected by leading national organizations to be awarded a planning grant spearheaded by the Pritzker Family Foundation.

The goal for funding is to increase Kindergarten Readiness through Prenatal to Age 3 interventions to help families with young children have a healthy start to life.

The proposal will focus on coordinating access and delivery of home visitation programming, informational resources and guidance for new families as soon as possible during pregnancy, and building a strong partnership with our medical community. Across each of these areas, Boone County has a tremendous offering of high quality programming. Now, we will work together to ensure we can more systematically reach all our families.

The County will celebrate a community launch May 3, directly following the 1:30 Commission Meeting.
