A Million Bucks Handed Out For Early Learning

Yesterday Papaw Beshear announced that more than $1 million ($1,011,404) in grants had been awarded to 64 Community Early Childhood Councils covering 88 counties in Kentucky. The funds are used to promote school readiness for children.

“It is imperative to the future of Kentucky that our children arrive at kindergarten ready to learn and succeed,” Gov. Beshear said. “That is why we must engage everyone, from lawmakers to families, in making sure all children in the Commonwealth get the best possible start in life.”
