Savannah, Mo. CDBG: $1 Million Grant for New Early Childhood Education Center


Mo-Kan wrote a $1 million grant application for the Savannah R-3 School District to construct a new early childhood education facility. Opened in 2018, the center serves 80 children and has created several  jobs. 

As an early childhood education facility, the project provides a new opportunity for dozens of local families as they pursue employment and education. The center provides full-day care to children of both typical income households (49% of enrollment) and low to moderate income households (51% of enrollment).
