Initiative Recognizes Public Housing Agencies as Portal to Early Learning Success
WASHINGTON, D.C., APRIL 28, 2023 – The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading announces its 2023 Public Housing Communities Honor Roll. The honorees employ strategies and tactics that leverage the resources of public housing agencies and organizations to advance seamless systems of coordinated and aligned care, services and family supports that are 24/7/365 and multigenerational.
The Honor Roll members demonstrate their leadership and depth and breadth of contributions supporting children through a variety of programs and partnerships.
These public housing communities have:
- shown sustained effort for more than a year;
- prioritized collaboration with school districts, other agencies, organizations and institutions to amplify the desired outcomes;
- used data to set baselines and targets, track progress and promote accountability for outcomes; and
- addressed foundational critical early school success and equitable recovery objectives, such as school readiness and attendance.
