The Baker-Polito Administration and the Community Economic Development Assistance Corporation (CEDAC) announced $6 million in grant awards for facility improvements at early education and care programs that serve low-income children. Six agencies, including the YWCA in Worcester, were picked to get an Early Education and Out of School Time (EEOST) capital improvement grant, which will help increase the quality of their early education programs through critical facility repairs and renovations.
The YWCA of Central Massachusetts received $1 million for its greater Worcester facility.
“Our administration is pleased to support facility improvements at early education and care programs throughout the Commonwealth to provide families with the resources necessary for success in and out of the classroom,” said Governor Charlie Baker in a statement. “Renovating and repairing child care facilities helps achieve the administration’s goal of providing quality early education and care in all Massachusetts communities.”
The Early Education and Out of School Time capital improvement grants are financed through the state’s capital budget and provide matching funds that leverage private investment.
