Only childcare locations not currently contracted to provide PHLpreK services need to respond to this LOI.
Thank you for your interest in the PHLpreK Program for FY20. Public Health Management Corporation (“PHMC”), on behalf of The City of Philadelphia (“City”), intends to fund 3,300 quality Pre-Kindergarten slots in September 2019.
The Letter of Interest process is designed to support PHLpreK expansion efforts and understand the capacity of interested providers. This Letter of Interest is required for all new sites wishing to become a part of PHLpreK in FY20 that are not contracted in the PHLpreK program in FY19. All current sites are not required to submit a Letter of Interest, but will participate in the Continuation Application process which will be released at a later date. Current PHLpreK providers who wish to have new site locations become part of PHLpreK in FY20 will need to complete the LOI for the new site.
Following the LOI process, it is anticipated that PHMC will administer a separate application process for all sites interested in participating in PHLpreK in Fiscal Year 2020. The application process for new providers will build on information collected in the LOI. A Continuing Application Process will also be released for current PHLpreK providers.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to read the entire LOI package before responding to this Letter of Interest.
