Grantee Orientation

Welcome to First Things First!

To help you succeed as an FTF grant partner, we’ve created these orientation trainings for you and your staff.

Your organization will be expected to follow certain guidelines for a variety of areas. Below are links to orientation videos that provide an overview of each area.

Your organization may have different departments covering these areas. If so, please make sure the appropriate training reaches the appropriate person. For example, if your organization has a marketing department, please make sure your director of marketing reviews the marketing orientation.

We are excited to partner with you in this upcoming fiscal year to help strengthen families and young children in Arizona.
