BATON ROUGE AREA CHAMBER: Louisiana Awarded Nearly $8 Million to Enhance Early Childhood Education


Baton Rouge Area Chamber issued the following announcement on Jan. 8.

Louisiana received an $8 million grant last week for early childhood education. The Department of Education will use the one-year funding to boost early childhood education options provided to the state's young learners.

Louisiana has been awarded nearly $8 million to enhance the quality of early childhood education in communities across the state. The bulk of the funding, about $7.1 million, comes from a competitive federal Preschool Development Grant, and about $800,000 comes from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation as part of a private match required by the grant process. The funding will help drive faster rates of improvement and equip more classrooms with fully prepared teachers.
