Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Advisory Council

Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Health Integration Prenatal-to-Three Grant Overview 

The Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) Grant is an opportunity to build state capacity and infrastructure and better integrate the early childhood and healthcare systems. Its particular focus on the Prenatal-to-three (PN-3) period offers the opportunity to reach and support families during the earliest stages of parenting.  

The purpose of the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Advisory Council is to advise the state of New Mexico and ECECD on ways to build and sustain coordinated systems of health and related services for families with young children.  The ECCS Advisory Council helps ECECD leverage the health system as a critical partner and connection point in the broader early childhood system.  

Council Members 

The council consists of a variety of members from the health and early childhood sectors, including physicians, midwives, doulas, community health workers, social workers, home visiting, state agencies and more.
