Washington, D.C. – Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District announced a $3,633,556 grant from the Administration for Children and Families to Sunrise Children’s Foundation for the Early Head Start program. The grant will serve 200 children between the ages of six weeks and three years old who live in some of the most underserved areas of Southern Nevada. Parents must be working or going to school full time to qualify.

“Critical education, health, and nutrition services provided by the Sunrise Children’s Foundation Early Head Start program are vital for developing our nation’s future leaders and empowering underserved communities. These funds will serve low-income infants and children by increasing the number of learning environments and ensuring low teacher-to-child ratios while expanding support systems for Early Head Start personnel. By providing more access to resources for our children and educators, this grant makes a valuable long-term investment for our community.”
