Forward through Ferguson is working on an Racial Equity 2030 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation that could bring millions to STL for childcare. The grant team has created an ECE Parent and Provider Survey to specifically engage them in the next phases of the proposal development process. Your voice is vital to us in developing a strong narrative. Please respond no later than by **12pm Noon on Friday, February 5th** so FTF can include your thoughts in the grant proposal. This survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
Racial Equity 2030 is a grant opportunity from W.K. Kellogg Foundation that calls for imaginative solutions to close the racial equity gap so all children, families, and communities can be more confident, healthier, and secure in their trust of the systems and institutions that serve them. Forward Through Ferguson’s #STL2039 Action Plan outlines a framework for improving Racial Equity, including a call to invest in Early Childhood Education (ECE). The WEPOWER ECE Playbook details resident-driven solutions for achieving equity in the broader early childhood ecosystem (prenatal to age 5), which is what we mean when we say “ECE” for the purposes of this proposal. We recognize ECE as a key lever for racial equity in St. Louis.
