AUCD's National Center on Disability in Public Health is pleased to announce a Request for Application (RFA) is to develop state-level innovative practice groups. These practice groups, or communities of practice, will leverage experience in strategically working across and aligning early childhood sectors, to support parents of young children who may have behavioral concerns. A secondary goal is to expand the reach of existing resources, such as free CDC materials on child development.


This RFA is limited to AUCD network centers and programs in order to leverage expertise toward increasing workforce capacity for implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of evidence-based programs for parents of young children.


Up to three (3) AUCD network centers and programs will be eligible for a maximum of $20,000 each to support the development and implementation of activities, as well as access to peer-to-peer consultation and individualized technical assistance through AUCD's public health team.
