Section 32p Grants

Great Start Logo
The Section 32p Grants combines funds formerly appropriated for Great Start Collaboratives in Section 32b and for Great Parents, Great Start in Section 32j. The funding distribution is based on an "equitable" formula, as approved by the State Board of Education. Some intermediate school districts will be supported in their collaborative work by funds from the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) in addition to the state aid funds. More flexibility in services is allowed to meet the goals identified in each Great Start Collaborative's strategic plan.
