The state is receiving a $26.8 million preschool development grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Gov. Chris Sununu said.

The University of New Hampshire will serve as the lead agency administering the grant, which will support a Welcome Families website, New Hampshire’s Family Resource Centers, expanded coaching of play-based learning and best practices, and development of an Early Childhood Center of Excellence at UNH. It also will provide grants directly to New Hampshire communities.

“My approach since day one has been to increase family engagement in every setting,” Sununu said. The grant will build on his administration’s commitment to early childhood development that began with full-day kindergarten funding in 2017, he said.
