The Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services are soliciting input on the competition for new Preschool Development grants. The Administration plans to use the $250 million new Race to the Top grants to states for a major new competition to build and expand high-quality preschool programs.
The two departments encourage all interested parties to submit opinions, ideas, suggestions and comments pertaining to the new competition on the Homeroom Blog until 5:00 PM EDT on February 26, 2014. Once the initial input from the field is collected and reviewed, they will draft an executive summary and post for comments that will, in turn, inform the final NIA.
Please see this website for complete information and to share your comments.
