FIRST 5 Modoc is dedicated to improving the areas where children’s lives and development are most affected. The Community Grants were designed to enable the vital public and community agencies serving the county’s children and families to expand and/or enhance their services, and to improve their own internal capacity to provide more effective services. Applicants are further encouraged to build collaborations and relationships with other agencies in the community to promote service integration and to avoid duplication of services.
Proposals must demonstrate that the funding will support a strategy or strategies (program, services, or project) that appropriately target one or more focus areas in the current Strategic Plan. Applicants must show their project meets a unique and distinct need in the community, addresses the Commission’s goals, and reaches children, aged 0-5.
