Department of Human Services seeks proposals for early childhood development project

Contact: Rita Woods, Director, Division of Financial Support Services, Department of Human Services, 970-328-8817,

Jan. 25, 2017 – The Eagle County Department of Human Services is soliciting proposals from eligible individuals or entities to provide services related to increasing community members’ understanding, knowledge and support of early childhood development.

In July 2016, the county published the Early Childhood Roadmap, a research-based blueprint that detailed how to create and sustain a comprehensive early care and education system to support the strategic goal: “Eagle County is a Great Place to Live for All.”

The Roadmap emphasizes that accessibility, affordability and quality of early care and education are all important for working families and their young children.  Through the RFP, Eagle County Department of Human Services seeks proposals to address the following components of roadmap implementation:
• Public understanding, support and will-building for early childhood development and high quality early care and education. (Roadmap p. 53-57)
• Community engagement around early care and education in Eagle County. (Roadmap p. 35-52)

The deadline to submit a proposal is 4 p.m. on Feb. 14. To view the entire RFP, visit The Early Childhood Roadmap can be viewed at For questions, contact Rita Woods at 970-328-8817 or at
