Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems
Healthy Chelsea is pleased to have been awarded the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) grant in August 2016. Chelsea is one of two communities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts which was awarded an ECCS grant through July 2021 (5 years).
This grant provides funding to the Chelsea and Springfield, as well as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, to work collaboratively and comprehensively to strengthen the developmental health of children ages birth to three. Massachusetts is one of 12 states which received ECCS grants to improve early childhood developmental outcomes.
Amy Izen, M.S., CCC-SLP began her position as ECCS Grant Coordinator for Healthy Chelsea in July 2017. Amy is assembling a team of colleagues from across organizations in Chelsea who work with children from birth to five years of age to define the goals and scope of the project.
