(Click for a detailed map.)

The Coconino Region includes most of Coconino County, minus the Navajo Nation and the Hualapai Reservation, plus Winslow, the Hopi Reservation, and the Kaibab Paiute Reservation. The Havasupai Reservation is also part of the region. While the majority of the region’s young children live in or near Flagstaff, many live in towns or rural areas.


The Coconino Regional Partnership Council makes strategic investments to support the healthy development and learning of the young children in the region. The council’s priorities include:

  • Improving the quality of child care and preschool programs
  • Scholarships for children to access high-quality early learning
  • Strengthening families through parenting education and voluntary home visiting
  • Oral health screenings and fluoride varnishes
  • Supporting access to healthcare for children
