 Two Florida place-based communities will participate in the national ECCS Impact CoIIN. The Miami Children’s Initiative (MCI) and New Town Success Zone (NTSZ) in Jacksonville are two of three high-need communities designated in 2008 by the state of Florida (F.S. 409.147) as Children’s Initiatives and modeled after the nationally-recognized Harlem Children’s Zone.

Both MCI and NTSZ have the leadership, capacity, family engagement and community partnerships to successfully test and implement the changes needed to effectively bridge the gap between home visiting and early learning, creating a pipeline to school readiness.
