New Grant Competition to Increase Access to High-Quality Preschool
U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced today that applications are now available for the $250 million Preschool Development Grants competition.
The goal of Preschool Development Grants is to support states - including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico – in building, developing and expanding voluntary, high-quality preschool programs in high-need communities for children from low- and moderate-income families. The new grant program will be jointly administered by the U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services.
