The Preschool Development Grant program was recently announced by U.S. Department of Education. Colorado is eligible to apply for an Expansion Grant of up to $15 million per year for four years. Successful state applicants must demonstrate an ambitious and achievable plan to implement and sustain high-quality preschool programs that can reach and serve additional children from low- and moderate-income families in two or more high-need communities.
CDE will act as the lead agency on this grant in close partnership with the Colorado Department of Human Services. Opportunities for school districts to be engaged in the grant development process will be announced on this website and in The Scoop.
