WROX Radio, Clarksdale, Mississippi.From WROX:

Mississippi is receiving a $10.6 million federal grant for preschool programs.  Governor Phil Bryant says the grant will expand a system developed by his State Early Childhood Advisory Council and the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

Mississippi’s plan includes coaching and technical assistance for employees of child care centers and aims to help low-income families find education and workforce training programs.   About 60,000 families with children up to age 5 could be helped through programs funded by the $10.6 million grant; the grant covers one year but Mississippi can apply for more money the next three years.
