Lenawee Great Start receives $37,000 grant


The Lenawee Great Start Collaborative received a $37,000 grant June 2 from the Early Childhood Investment Corporation in Lansing to fund local early childhood projects. The grant will be used to support four early childhood initiatives, according to Margaret Gross, Director.

“Collaborative members and workgroups have been diligently planning projects that will address the needs of our youngest children and their families. This funding will allow these projects to move forward,” said Gross.

In total, 32 Great Start Collaboratives statewide received the grants, totaling $1 million. Funded projects include implementing “medical home” efforts in Wayne and Shiawassee counties, coordinating home visiting services in Kent and Wayne counties and improving the quality of child care training and mental health supports in Jackson and Muskegon.
This funding is in addition to the $8.2 million that 55 Great Start Collaboratives received last fall to support their local early childhood system building efforts. The funding is provided through the Kellogg Foundation, which supports the implementation of innovative, collaborative programs.

The grants will further strengthen local efforts to build early childhood systems and supports to ensure children arrive at the doors of the K-12 school system ready willing and able to learn, according to Alissa Parks, director of Great Start Collaborative development and assistance for ECIC.

“With the Michigan budget and economy in crisis, it is even more critical to ensure that Michigan has an efficient and accessible early childhood system,” Parks said. “These grants will help local Great Start Collaboratives and Parent Coalitions continue to strengthen local coordination, efficiency and address gaps.”
