@ Rita Baker: In NJ we have prioritized Family Engagemnt and sought after grants to support the work. The County Councils for Young Children are local Parent Councils that are support through our Preschool Development Grant. We were able to lift up Family Engagement within our ECCS grant as it was a priority of the work. We were able to budget funds for Family Engagement Activities and support Leadership opportunities and participation through gift cards. Throug ECCS We have budgeted for Nicole role and focus as the Family and Community Engagement Coordinator and through a subgrant support Deepa's role as our State Family Leader to provide training, support and coaching of Family Leaders.

@Elizabeth: Future topics would like to explore (1) Parent leader/peer coaches/peer support roles - how these roles are funded, what they look like (full time/part time/ad hoc), what responsibilities and leadership responsibilities they share; (2) Cool/innovative ways that HMG LAs are aiming to engage families across different cultures and geographies

The Universal focus on Developmental Health Promotion is key. It's not just when a child has a concern but universal understanding of how your child grows is important. HMG is a resource along the way at any time in their child's development including when or if their are concerns.
