Expected Outcomes

It is expected that the EHS/CC grantee and partners will provide and implement quality services to infants and toddlers and their families.  The expected outcome is that all three programs will obtain and maintain compliance through the OHS monitoring system.

Arkansas will have in place more early childhood systems that will enhance the current work that is being done.

 

Evidence

The evidence will be reflected in their monitoring report after their first 18 months of providing services and each year afterwards.
