Grant Opportunities

First Things First offers grant opportunities through competitive Requests for Grant Applications (RFGAs). Statewide programs are implemented across regional boundaries and are designed to benefit all Arizona children, while regional programs support First Things First regional partnership council funding plans approved by the Board each year. First Things First does not accept unsolicited requests for funding.
