The materials and equipment in the link are examples for selection purposes. The actual items provided may differ slightly based on pricing and availability at the time of ordering. 

Each item has a maximum number that will be considered in the first review of applications. However, should your agency/business have a need for higher number of items than indicated in the maximum, there is an opportunity in the application to indicate the total number you could use and describe your need. Requests over maximums will be fulfilled based on available funding after the equipment/materials in the first review of applications have been fulfilled. Staff from First 5 Solano may contact you to discuss your request.

Once submitted and approved by First 5 Solano, First 5 Solano will obtain the items and you will be required to pick up the items at an arranged time at the First 5 Solano office at 3375 Sonoma Blvd, Ste 30, Vallejo. At the time of pick up, you will be required to sign an agreement that the items will be used for the purposes of serving children ages 0-5 for COVID-19 response.
