(This amendment provides $9.9 million the second year from federal funds for an awarded grant through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families. These federal funds will be used by VDOE and its partners to support statewide initiatives that bolster Virginia’s early childhood system. These initiatives include producing a statewide needs assessment and strategic plan, aligning early learning standards, and developing kindergarten-readiness tools for teachers and families.)
