Early Childhood Councils

To begin designing a better future, CFM has proudly undertaken signature initiatives to “turn the curve” for children and youth in Mississippi. Recognizing that no one knows what a community needs more than the members of the community itself, the CFM has launched planning grants to establish Early Childhood Councils (ECCs) at the local level. We currently have 17 established councils, and we plan to expand this program state-wide over the next several years by awarding Early Childhood Council planning grants yearly. Be on the lookout next summer for more information about 2024 ECC planning grants!
