MRTQ PDN Receives Contract Amendment to Support Quality Improvement Awards

Maine Roads to Quality Professional Development Network (MRTQ PDN) is partnering with the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Child and Family Services (DHHS OCFS) to offer Quality Improvement Awards and Quality Improvement Mini-Grants to early childhood and out-of-school time programs in Maine. The Quality Improvement Awards will recognize programs that have moved up the Steps of Quality for ME, Maine's quality rating and improvement system. Programs working toward or maintaining national accreditation can apply for Quality Improvement Mini-Grants to fund improvements to their environments. Additional opportunities for programs to earn quality improvement funds will be announced in the fall.
