Pennsylvania’s Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge Grant
In December 2013 Pennsylvania was awarded $51.7 million over four years to improve program quality and close the achievement gap for at-risk students so they can enter kindergarten ready to succeed. Pennsylvania’s application was developed in coordination with members of the community and several government agencies serving children and families.
The state has combined a statewide approach to improving the system and supports for providers, teachers, and families with a local community-based approached to provide intensive supports and local grants to 50 of our highest risk communities.
