James B. Hunt, Jr. Institute for Education Leadership and Policy Foundation Summit

$25,000 over one year

The Hunt Institute, in collaboration with the BUILD Initiative and the Center for Child and Family Policy at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy, will develop and host two multi-state summits dedicated to systems-building — establishing comprehensive statewide early childhood systems, with a particular emphasis on strategies and programs that reach children in the first three years of life. The first summit will kick-off in early 2018 and consist of state teams from 8-12 states. The second summit will be a 50-state National Summit to be held in early 2019. The project is overseen by Casey Remer, Director of Policy and Research at The Hunt Institute.
