Professional Impact NJ is a strong supporter of the accreditation project. Since 2001 we have provided incentive award funding to first time accredited programs and family child care homes. At this time we have exhausted funding for this contract year ending Sept. 30, 2013. However, we will continue to provide technical support for those of you continuing to pursue accreditation. Please contact our office at (908) 737-4240.
