ABC’s programs to get $7M grant

Action for a Better Community’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs will receive a $7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for education programs for children, infants and pregnant women in Monroe County.

“Ensuring access to health and education services for young children is critical to ending the cycle of poverty that affects too many families in our community,” said Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-Perinton, in a statement. “Investments in Head Start and Early Head Start are a key component of making sure our kids are ready for success in school and life.”

ABC’s Head Start programs promote school readiness of children ages birth to 5. The program supports six centers in the Rochester region and provides direct services to more than 1,330 people.

ABC received a $6.9 million grant for the programs in 2015.
