Currently, our Foundation supports 25 Early Childhood Coalitions (ECI). Each community commits to three stages of involvement: community visioning, project implementation, and sustainable operation. The ECI receives coalition support and project implementation grants. ECI communities are selected through an invitation-only application process. Interested communities may contact Teri Steckelberg, Early Childhood Director, at 507-455-3215 or teris@smifoundation.org.
