and technical assistance (TTA) that reflects current evidence, is research-informed and promotes best practices.

The NC PFCE will strengthen professional development outcomes for staff and improve outcomes for children and families enrolled in Head Start and/or Early Head Start programs.

The NC PFCE TTA efforts will lead to improved family outreach and recruitment; improved family well-being; expanded family engagement in children’s learning and development; and enhanced community partnerships that support families.

Because of the complex work the NC PFCE will conduct, the grantee will be expected to bring together knowledgeable subrecipients within the fields of human services, early childhood, social work, mental health, parenting, leadership, and family economic mobility.

The NC PFCE will join three other National Centers, and is part of a large comprehensive OHS Training and Technical Assistance System.
