Five states eligible for $133M in Race to the Top

Posted 4/10/12

WASHINGTON — Five states that were finalists in an earlier “Race to the Top” education competition are eligible for a share of $133 million in federal funding to improve early learning centers, according to The Associated Press.

The Obama administration announced that Colorado, Illinois, New Mexico, Oregon and Wisconsin are eligible for a share of $133 million in new funding to help build statewide systems that improve early learning programs.

The money is intended to improve early child care such as Head Start Centers and preschools.

Late last year, nine states - including Rhode Island - won a collective $500 million for early learning programs. Thirty-five states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, applied for the federal funds.
