Gov. Steve Beshear announced $952,500 in funding last week for 39 Community Early Childhood Councils across Kentucky to promote school readiness for children.
Larue County CECC was awarded $10,000.
The grant amounts range from $7,500 to $97,000 and were awarded based on the child population in the community. The grants will fund professional development for childcare providers, assist with community outreach and public health programs for prenatal services and even help children entering school.
The 68 councils across the state include community representatives from local school districts, public health departments, childcare providers, Head Start and local libraries.
