Project Title

Enhancing Equity in Child Health and Development through Go NAPSACC

Funding Dates



NAPSACC LogoThis project aims to enhance support for ECE programs and systems by re-envisioning Go NAPSACC tools, resources, and implementation strategies through an equity lens to better address the complex issues that drive inequities. These efforts should bolster widespread adoption and use of these materials in NC, particularly in lower-resourced and underrepresented communities, to create more equitable opportunities for quality child care. This is a project of the Children’s Healthy Weight Research Group (CHWRG).
