Funding Opportunities
Allocation Process

Smart Start conducts an annual allocation process to review and approve funding for programs that meet the criteria of Smart Start's objectives based on annual funding from the state legislature. 

Every three years, bids are requested from community agencies who are direct service providers and information is given about the types of programs we are able to fund, including proposal requirements, deadlines, procedures, etc. Funding is not guaranteed for a full three years as it depends on available funding and program performance. 

Program activities are reviewed and approved by the Smart Start Board of Directors on an annual basis.
