Empower PLUS+ launched in Arizona last year. Is accepting applications for Cohort 2. This is NOT the same as the Empower program, which most of you are already enrolled in.
Empower PLUS+ is an intense federally funded one-year project which provides training and technical assistance to child care CENTERS wishing to improve practices in the areas of health, nutrition and physical activity.
Requirements for Eligibility:
Must be a child care CENTER – we cannot accommodate group homes and family child care programs at this time.
Center must be in MARICOPA or PIMA counties – we cannot accommodate centers in other counties at this time.
Center must serve a minimum of 50 children between the ages of birth to age 5 – you cannot be a ‘before and after school’ program only.
Center must be committed to quality and be willing to improve their practices and policies related to health, nutrition and physical activity.
Center must be committed to complete the project – 5 trainings (weekdays) between September 2014 through May 2015.
See flyer and apply using the link.
Only 75 centers will be enrolled – 25 in Pima and 50 in Maricopa.
Applications are due on July 30, 2014
