Mississippi Governor Announces Federal Grant for Preschool Programs

January 3, 2019

On Wednesday Governor Phil Bryant announced the news via Twitter.

Mississippi has been awarded $10.62 million for the Preschool Development Grant – from birth to 5. Thank you to Secretary Alex Azar. My State Early Childhood Advisory Council, in partnership with MDHS, has developed a system that focuses on achieving and maintaining high-quality childcare services.

These federal grant funds will help expand this system and to maximize parental choice and engagement. The main goal is to ensure children have a smooth transition from the child care center, Head Start, and into the public school system.
