Needless to say, we are excited about the opportunity to implement Early Head Start at CAFI for our customers with children ages 0-3 years. The U.S. Congress author- ized and funded the Early Head Start program beginning in 1994. HHS has funded only a limited number of Early Head Start programs since 1994. Agencies have competed against each other in a nation- al competition through grant applications. A panel of experts evaluated the proposal and made the recommendations of which agencies should receive funding. Some of these agen- cies employ professional grant writers to develop their propos- al. CAFI's grant application was leveloped in-house with assistance from one of our Board Members, Dr. Harry Morgan, Professor of Early. Childhood Education, State University of West Georgia. Te team worked extreme- ly hard to develop a realistic proposal that would meet the needs of our customers, espe- ciaUy those working parents. "I cannot emphasize enough the role of team CAFI, who worked extremely hard to prepare the grant," according to Jerome Anderson, Executive Director. "We have been blessed to receive this grant and now we are moving into an phase, which will plan a first class our customers.: "We want to Mayor, City CounCil, Commission, Congressional especially the late CoverdeU, for encouragement Callaway Foundation, State Legislative local Chamber of Department of Children Services Health Department, existing Head Start in the Community. team effort and we appreciative."
