Needed: Statewide Project Coordinator for Early Childhood Program
Smart Start Oklahoma is very excited to be partnering with the Community Action Project of Tulsa County on implementing a grant to increase funding for high quality care for low-income children birth to three. They are seeking to hire a statewide project coordinator as quickly as possible to provide project management services and oversight to these programs across the state.
The Oklahoma State Department of Education has funded a “Pilot Early Childhood Program” to improve and expand early childhood services to low income children ages birth through three. The grant has been awarded to a single grantee, Community Action Project of Tulsa County, which will work with partners throughout the state, including existing Early Head Start programs. These programs are located in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Sand Springs, Antlers, Hugo Idabel, Bristow, Sapulpa, and Stillwater. Additional service providers may qualify to participate during the grant period.
The Statewide Project Coordinator (SPC) position, reporting to the Executive Director of Smart Start Oklahoma, will provide project management services and oversight to these program partners to enable program partners to implement the pilot program and to meet program requirements. The SPC will coordinate financial operations, processes, and other activities between the program partners and the primary grantee, and provide technical assistance.
