Foster Announces More Than $2.3 Million for Early Childhood Education in Joliet
Washington, DC – I am pleased to announce that the Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Joliet will receive over $2.3 million in grant funding from the Department of Health and Human Services. This funding will allow the organization’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs to continue. These programs are vital for so many children in Joliet so they have an opportunity to access educational resources early in their lives. At a time when the priorities of the new administration are threatening so many important programs like these, it is important to remember that early childhood education is one of the best ways we can invest in our future.
