Alice Huffard Richards Fund Early Child Development Grants

We believe that access to extraordinary educational opportunities from birth is critical for the health and happiness of the children of West Georgia and the communities in which they will live and work. We prioritize grants that impact children from birth through age four. 
We fund:
  • Efforts designed to develop young children’s “reading readiness” and early literacy skills
  • Access to local, high quality early educational opportunities
  • Professional development of the local, early childhood development workforce
  • Early screening and intervention for preschoolers around problems that could limit educational success (speech, hearing, vision, development, autism, and specific learning disabilities)
  • Approaches that prepare parents to effectively support their child’s early learning, develop reading readiness skills and promote early literacy (parent coaching/mentoring, book in the home, etc.)

Applications for AHR’s 2022 grants open on Monday, August 22, 2022 and close at 5:00 P.M. on Friday September 23, 2022
