FY24 CPPI Cohort 4 Grant

Deadline: August 7, 2023 by 4 PM

EEC is conducting a renewal procurement to award grants to cities, towns, regional school districts or educational collaboratives to expand high-quality pre-kindergarten or preschool opportunities, on a voluntary basis, to four-year-old children eligible for kindergarten by September 2024 and three-year-old children eligible for kindergarten by September 2025.

EEC will use the model of the CPPI Grant to engage communities in collaborations between public school districts and EEC-licensed early education programs to explore ways to expand local access for three and four-year-old children and provide opportunities for access to high quality care that meets the diverse needs of families in their communities.
