Senator Boxer: Giving More Contra Costa Kids an Early Head Start
Thursday, August 19, 2010
There are 170 more infants and toddlers in Contra Costa County who will soon have access to Early Head Start, a program which has been proven to improve a child’s readiness to learn, performance in school, and health.
That’s because the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently announced a $2 million Recovery Act grant to the Community Services Bureau, which operates Early Head Start programs at eight sites around Contra Costa County.
As a strong supporter of Early Head Start, I am pleased that this investment will help more children in Contra Costa County get the start in life that they need and deserve.
U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
