Gov. Steve Beshear on Monday announced more than $1 million in grants to 64 Community Early Childhood Councils to promote school readiness for children.
Woodford County's council received $11,800. Jessamine County's Council received $17,000, according to a news release.
"It is imperative to the future of Kentucky that our children arrive at kindergarten ready to learn and succeed," Beshear said. "That is why we must engage everyone, from lawmakers to families, in making sure all children in the Commonwealth get the best possible start in life."
