Funding will be needed for the required facilitator training and curriculum materials. At a minimum 1 manual for every two people attending training is required. Curriculum manuals are copyrighted material and may not be reproduced.

Program implementation expenses have been kept to a minimum. However, some groups may decide to secure outside funding to support facilitator honoraria, child care, food, and supply costs. Supplies for session activities are estimated at $20/family for copying handouts, colored markers, poster board, glue sticks, etc.
