The ZERO TO THREE Policy Center is pleased to announce a technical assistance opportunity for state teams to connect and develop strategies to advance state policy related to financing infant and early childhood mental health (IECMH) assessment, diagnosis, and treatment.

This opportunity builds on our 2016 IECMH policy convening and technical assistance project, and will center around a convening of state teams and national experts.

The Request for Applications is open to all states, except those that participated in the 2016 convening. Ten states will be selected to:

  • Send a team of five people to join national experts for a convening May 15-16, 2018, focused on financing of IECMH assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Travel expenses will be covered by ZERO TO THREE.
  • Participate in a series of virtual learning and sharing sessions with other convening attendees in the year following the convening.
  • Receive technical assistance from ZERO TO THREE to create and implement an action plan to advance IECMH financing policy.
