The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration announced its Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning received nearly $7 million in federal grant funding to strengthen the state’s early childhood education system. The grant supports strategic planning and a formal evaluation of Indiana’s birth-through-age-5 early childhood education programs.
The preschool development grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will help ensure early education is streamlined to best serve Hoosier families and meet Indiana’s workforce needs. Grant outcomes will help further inform and develop Governor Holcomb’s Next Level agenda goal to expand On My Way Pre-K in 2021.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Indiana to focus holistically on how to best develop our youngest Hoosiers in a way that propels them toward a successful future,” said Jennifer Walthall, M.D., M.P.H., secretary of the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration. “We don’t often get the chance to unify our planning, and this funding allows us to do that."
The award is a one-year grant with opportunities to apply for additional funding in years to come.
