Grants to Nevada nonprofits, school districts, and charter schools for comprehensive pre-Kindergarten programming, with an emphasis on programs that serve low-income families. Funding for the current cycle is intended for the expansion or establishment of programs that provide full-day services specifically for 4-year-old children at 200% or below of the Federal Poverty Level.

Required program elements include teacher qualifications, eligibility, intensity, curriculum, class size, evaluation, family engagement, comprehensive services, inclusion, and equal access. For additional information, see:

A key component of the evaluation is the assessment of quality indicators of program delivery and program outcomes to describe the projects and evaluate their effectiveness. Legislation directs the NDE to develop statewide performance and outcome indicators to measure the effectiveness of ECE programs. Per legislation, the indicators must include:
- Measures of the developmental progress of children before and after their completion of the program;
- Measures of family engagement in the program before and after completion of the program.

In addition to the required program components, programs should also plan for adequate administrative supports. These include:
- Internal Coach: this person works closely with the QRIS coach to support teachers in developing and maintaining appropriate pre-K environments and effective instructional strategies
- Family Engagement: this person facilitates implementation of the family engagement survey and development of the family engagement plan. In addition, this person will coordinate activities to appropriately and effectively engage and support families
- Outreach and Enrollment: this person is charged with informing families and the community about the program, building and maintaining enrollment and maintaining proper eligibility documentation
- Data and Assessment: this person is responsible for gathering and submitting required data, reports and documentation. This person also facilitates any state and locally required assessment processes.

Budget emphasis should be placed on staff salaries and benefits, necessary classroom/curriculum/assessment supplies, and required travel.
