through Five (PDG B-5).

The PDG B-5 Renewal Grants seek to empower state governments to lead the way in leveraging federal, state, and local early care and education investments while developing and improving their comprehensive, statewide birth through five early childhood care and education system.

These Renewal Grants seek to assist states in helping low-income and disadvantaged children enter kindergarten prepared and ready to succeed.

In addition, these grants will help improve the transitions between early care and education settings and elementary schools.

The overall responsibility of the PDG B-5 Renewal Grant is to assist states in the coordination of existing early childhood funding streams resulting in services being provided to more children birth through five in a mixed delivery system.

States awarded a renewal grant may use a certain portion of grant funds to award subgrants to programs in a mixed delivery system across the state. System Alert - Entity Validation Delays:
