What’s New

Due to COVID-19 the following funding releases will not be proceeding as scheduled in FY 2020:

  • Investment Grants – Evidence Based Practice;
  • Leading Grants – Targeted Initiatives; and
  • Social Enterprise Competition.

We are continuing to evaluate and watch how COVID-19 is impacting our community and children and families we serve in Hillsborough County. We will keep the provider community informed on how we plan to move forward with our funding releases.   We appreciate your patience during this time.  

Information about the Coronavirus is all over the news and children are aware. Here are some tips on how to talk with your children and fun activities that you can do with them to make them feel safe and cared for during the Coronavirus. 

All Children in Hillsborough County deserve to have the best start to their education.  Thank you to the Hillsborough Community College Foundation, Marni Fuente and her team for their continued dedication to giving children the best possible start in life. Please watch the video highlighting the work of one of our funded agencies!
