First Things First Captures Federal Grant to Support High Quality Preschool

ACS client First Things First of AZ is given credit for helping the state capture $20 million in federal funds to support high quality preschool. Funds will support First Things First’s flagship program, Quality First, the state’s Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS), and help grow partnerships with institutions of higher education to increase the number of high-quality early childhood professionals.

Staff in ADE’s Early Childhood Education unit finalized the grant application earlier this year with support from the Governor’s Office, First Things First, and other early learning stakeholders.
