Bruening Awards New Strong Start Grant

$25,000 was awarded to groundWork Ohio to provide advocacy leadership for early childhood education in Ohio. 

Bruening Foundation funds will support groundWork in the execution of a cost-of-quality study for home providers, who provide care and education for a significant number of infants and toddlers from low-income families in Cuyahoga County.  Results of the study will be used to advocate for adequate funding in the state budget to allow home providers to achieve quality ratings under the state’s Step Up to Quality rating system for early learning providers.
