CDA® Grant Ended on June 30th

As of June 30th, the Council for Professional Recognition’s grant, which offered funding for MD early childhood educators to earn or renew the Child Development Associate® (CDA) credential has ended.

The Council appreciates the support and trust extended to us by MSDE and the collaboration with Maryland Family Network throughout the grant! The funds have been instrumental in advancing the Council’s vision of a society where all children learn and thrive in environments led by competent, valued early childhood educators.  The Council is grateful for the opportunity to have made a meaningful impact by advancing career pathways for early childhood educators in the state of Maryland.

We encourage all those interested in pursuing the CDA to do so through our general application process. Additional information on the CDA can be found at: The CDA is a key step on the path to career advancement in early childhood education!
