No child’s demographics or zip code should determine their destiny. As the only funder of early childhood programs in every county of the state, South Carolina First Steps works to ensure that all children have equitable access to the resources and support they need. Each year, we allocate state funding to all 46 counties based on population and need. We also actively seek additional resources to make discretionary and targeted grants.
South Carolina First Steps is offering one-time incentive grants of up to $30,000 for newly created and/or newly approved private providers proposing to become a new First Steps 4K provider or to expand First Steps 4K services to additional children.
