Grant to a Washington, DC behavioral health service provider for early childhood intervention initiative programs for high-risk children. Funding is intended to support therapy and family coping skills programs that will assist infants and small children exhibiting serious emotional disturbances.

The Government of the District of Columbia seeks to sub-grant funding to support the implementation of the System of Care Expansion and Sustainability Cooperative Agreement titled DC Social, Emotional and Early Development (DC SEED) Initiative. The DC SEED Initiative addresses the highly specific, largely unmet needs of infants and young children (birth – 6 years old) residing in the District who are at high imminent risk for or diagnosed with serious emotional disturbance (SED).

DBH will allocate funding to develop and further expand the early childhood System of Care within the children’s provider network, implement early childhood specific interventions, such as Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and Strengthening Families Coping Resources (SFCR). The selected provider will participate in the overall evaluation of the DC SEED Initiative in partnership with Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development.
