Early Childhood Councils Funded

Frankfort, KY – Many counties in Western Kentucky will receive funding this year for early childhood education planning. Funding for sixty-five Community Early Childhood Councils to serve 92 counties will come from Tobacco Settlement monies. The Childhood Councils were created in 2001 to oversee the needs of Kentucky's youngest residents. Appropriations are based on the number of children under the age of five in a county.
