Sixpence New and Expansion Grants
Sixpence Early Learning Fund announces a new grant opportunity to promote community-based programs serving children prenatal-to-age-three.
The Board of Trustees of the Sixpence Early Learning Fund announced on June 9, 2021, that it will accept proposals for a new round of grant awards to help communities establish new or expand existing early childhood programs for very young children at risk and their families.
The new grants were made possible through a funding increase for Sixpence proposed in LB342 by Senator John Stinner of Gering, Appropriations Committee chair. The proposal was subsequently incorporated into the state’s mainline budget bill, allocating an additional $2.5 million per year to Sixpence.
