With a $293,000 grant, Children’s Place will begin construction of the improvements in March

The Cape Cod Children’s Center has received $293,000 in state funds that will allow the center to renovate the old portion of its home in Eastham.

The money comes from the Haley-Driscoll Administration’s Early Learning and Out-of-School Capital Fund.

The fund’s primary goal is to renovate early education and out-of-school time facilities that primarily serve low-income families.

“We are very fortunate to receive this grant, as it is so important to support the early education and care sector,” said Cindy Horgan, Executive Director of Cape Cod Children’s Place.

The Haley-Driscoll administration recently announced the names of 20 organizations across the state to receive $8.5 million in previous grants from the Early Learning and Out-of-School Time Capital Fund.

“We are grateful to Governor Healey that he sees the value in this. It impacts everyone and makes our communities stronger in supporting the early education sector,” Horgan said.

The grant will allow the organization to improve the physical environment, as its Eastham center approaches 30 years old, Horgan said.
