The SCCAP Head Start program has just submitted an application for $120,628 to buy two new buses and a van. The new vehicles would replace two aging buses and a van that was damaged in an accident.
The application for Program Improvement Funds was submitted to the Office of Head Start in U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.
We’ll keep you posted on the status of this request to purchase new vehicles that would allow SCCAP Head Start to provide transportation for young children in Monroe County that is as safe and cost effective as possible. This is the third grant proposal the Head Start staff with help from others has cranked out in less than a month – more than 250 pages of work to request about $1.5 million – so to everyone involved in those arduous endeavors, we say thanks, good luck and cheers!
