EEOST Capital Fund

In 2013, the Massachusetts House and Senate approved the five-year housing and community development bond bill (H 3727) which — for the first time ever, includes a new Early Education and Out of School Capital Fund to improve the quality of program facilities!

It affirms the positive impact that high quality education makes in children’s lives and in the economic development of the Commonwealth. It also acknowledges that all children, regardless of family income or circumstances, should be educated in physical environments that support healthy development and learning.

Children’s Investment Fund works closely with CEDAC and the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care to administer the Early Education and Out of School Time (EEOST) Capital Fund, which was established in 2014 as a result of the 2013 bond bill.
