Of the 21 CECCs, Trigg County’s will receive $7,890. The announcement is part of the governor’s continuing commitment to improving education and health services for Kentucky’s youngest citizens.
“Too many children enter school with preventable health problems, undeveloped minds and no sense of curiosity or engagement in life around them. They start out already behind.” said Gov. Beshear. “These grants will help communities put our youngest students on the path to a life of promise and meaning.”
The purpose of the CECCs is to bring a broad based group of local people together to assess the unique needs of each early childhood community and build upon current strengths as communities explore creative ways to meet those needs. Councils were challenged to create distinctive ways of improving the early childhood community.
