Early Learning Gets A Financial Boost

Early Learning Indiana is awarding $100,000 in grants to groups across the state that educate young children. The nonprofit announced Thursday that four different providers would each receive $25,000 for early learning efforts, including pre-kindergarten programs. The grants are funded through a $20 million contribution the Lilly Endowment made to Early Learning Indiana in 2014. The money will be used over the next year to pay for staff costs, promotion campaigns and planning.
