Grants New Hampshire agencies and organizations to plan, develop, and implement a support system to improve the social and emotional development of young children in early childcare settings. Funding is intended to develop a team of process coaches, engage family participation, and implement the iSocial leadership team program in local communities.


The purpose of this RFP is to seek proposals from an agency or organization that will support New Hampshire’s local iSocial* leadership teams to engage in action planning, data collection and use, and implementation of the Pyramid Model. The Pyramid Model framework uses implementation science to promote evidence-based practices that build on the natural curiosity of the child and promote social and emotional development of young children. The successful applicant will develop a Master Cadre of highly skilled Process Coaches, build local capacity for process coaching, and embed family engagement strategies such as Positive Solutions for Families within the selected communities/sites.

*iSocial is a system of supports to improve the social-emotional outcomes for young children in early childhood settings designed to help implement the Pyramid Model Framework through professional development, collaboration and infrastructure development and data-informed, team-based decision-making. iSocial originated through the NHDOE’s State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) and is expanding into community settings with the support of a State Personnel Development Grant (SPDG).
