Applications open for early childhood development grants

The Greater Worcester Community Foundation is now accepting online applications for community grants in Support of Early Childhood Development.

The typical grant range is $5,000 to $25,000 and will support early childhood programs that:

  • Increase the quality and quantity of formal early education for low-income children;
  • Provide a foundation for lifelong development rooted in behavioral and physical health;
  • Support parents and families in their roles as teachers, caregivers, and supporters of their children’s development;
  • Help eliminate summer learning loss among low-income children in greater Worcester.

The submission deadline is Wednesday, March 1.

More information is available on the Greater Worcester Community Foundation website
