About the Webinar
Don't reinvent the wheel!  Join this webinar to hear more about success stories and lessons learned from the 2013 Act Early State Systems Grantees from Maryland, Wyoming, California, and New Jersey.  The Act Early State Systems Grants support the collaboration of the Act Early State Teams and work to further the activities initiated by state teams during the Act Early Summits.  There will be ample time for you to ask questions on what works, what doesn't, and why. We hope you will be able to join us!
