NYS Receives Federal Funding


In December 2014, New York State was awarded a $25 million Preschool Expansion Grant and 12 New York State applicants received funding to develop new Early Head Start Child Care Partnerships. 

Preschool Expansion Grant

New York’s successful effort to obtain the approximately $25 million per year Preschool Expansion Grant award was a collaborative effort of the State Education Department and the Early Childhood Advisory Council with significant support from the Governor’s Office and the Division of the Budget.

Early Head Start/Child Care Partnerships

The twelve organizations that received Early Head Start/Child Care Partnerships will receive a total of $22,300,000.  These funds will allow them to provide comprehensive early childhood education services to approximately 1,650 children birth to three years of age and their families.  To be eligible, these families need have incomes at or below 100 percent of poverty.
