Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response


Thank you for your commitment to strengthening the early childhood system and improving the well-being of Vermont’s children and their families.

Building Bright Futures (BBF) is Vermont’s early childhood public-private partnership mandated by Vermont’s Act 104 and the federal Head Start Act to serve as the State Advisory Council (SAC) on Early Childhood. The SAC is the mechanism to advise the Governor and Legislature on the current status of children from the prenatal period to age eight and their families.

BBF has a multitiered infrastructure that includes 12 regional councils reaching every corner of the state, Vermont’s Early Childhood Action Plan (VECAP) including 7 VECAP committees, the State Advisory Council (SAC) and the Early Childhood Interagency Coordinating Team (ECICT). BBF ‘s robust infrastructure is flexible and adapts to emerging legislative, community, public and private needs while supporting the early childhood system in addressing the complex health, education, behavioral health, and safety conditions surrounding all children in the prenatal period to age eight and their families in Vermont. BBF works to strengthen the early childhood system and ensuring each and every Vermont child and family has access to the services, resources and supports they need.

Your contribution today helps us to continue progress toward a vibrant future for Vermont families and communities. You can find more information on Vermont’s Early Childhood Action Plan and Vermont’s Early Childhood COVID-19 Response on our webpage.
