Funds available for On My Way Pre-K facilities

The Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning is partnering with Early Learning Indiana to offer almost 500,000 dollars in grants for early learning providers. These grants can be applied for by any Allen County program or facility that participates, or agrees to participate, in the On My Way Pre-K Pilot Program.

Last year, the Indiana General Assembly established the pre-k pilot program, which is expected to serve approximately 2,000 students.

These grants will greatly benefit Indiana's participating pre-k programs, and I am pleased to see more resources come available to support early learning in Indiana. Facilities can use the grants to furnish classrooms, supply materials and more. Applications for grants are due February 15 and can be found here, along with information about the On My Way Pre-K Program.

I encourage our local pre-k programs to apply for these grants. Education is a top priority which will better prepare students for their futures.
