The Board of Trustees of the Sixpence Early Learning Fund announced June 9021 that it would accept proposals this summer 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 for the next two years.
A district contact or community partner must attend the RFP webinar to apply. The live webinar will be held at the time below:
