Congresswoman Johnson Announces $1.69 Million Head Start Grant for District 30 Montessori Lumin Education
Washington, DC – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson today announced that the Department of Health and Human Services awarded a $1,694,735 grant to Lumin Education, an East Dallas Montessori. The grant was administered under the department’s Early Head Start program which targets pre-school aged children and families.
“Investing in early childhood education is an investment in our future,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “The benefits of exposing children at a young age to the classroom sets them on a trajectory of increased knowledge, better social skills and a lifelong appreciation of learning. I am delighted to congratulate Lumin Education on receiving this funding and look forward to the great number of District 30 residents and children they will be able to serve in the coming years.”
The funding will be allocated for the upcoming 2019 calendar year.
