Preschool Development Grants – Expansion Grants

Note: Consistent with the Departments’ plan to ensure that a variety of States benefit from the Preschool Development Grants competition, the Departments have selected high-quality proposals from both States that have and that have not received Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) awards. Applications are ranked in order of their average raw score and are presented in two separate slates for Absolute Priority 2 and Absolute Priority 3.1

1Absolute Priorities 2 and 3 divided the States eligible for Expansion Grants into those that had received RTT-ELC grants and those that had not. As noted in the NIA, to ensure that a variety of States benefit from the Preschool Development Grants program and that States that have received RTT-ELC awards are not unfairly advantaged in the competition, the Departments could consider high-ranking applications meeting Absolute Priorities 2 and 3 separately when making grants.
