SD ECCS Collaborative

Help ensure a strong start for SD's children.

The Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment (CPCM) is one of 20 Awardees nationwide of the Federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) grant. HRSA’s ECCS grant program aims to build integrated maternal and early childhood systems of care that are equitable, sustainable, comprehensive, and inclusive of the health system as a key partner. CPCM is working with several state agencies on this grant, including DOH/MCH and MIECHV programs, DOE, and DSS. Parents and and community-level partners are also included on this grant that aims to increase collaboration and effectiveness of state and community-level systems serving families and young children, especially from prenatal to 3 years-old.

The ECCS grant gives South Dakota an opportunity to build upon the strong collaborations and systems that support our youngest children and their families.
