Parents as Teachers receives funding from state to support the expansion of early childhood anti-poverty initiatives

Governor Andrew Cuomo recently announced $4.75 million to support the expansion of early childhood anti-poverty initiatives as part of the Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative (RMAPI).

Funding will support new summer learning programs, and child care and home visiting services for children and caregivers in the City of Rochester pilot neighborhoods targeted by the Anti-Poverty Initiative, including the EMMA neighborhood – East Main, Mustard & Atlantic Avenue – Beechwood and Marketview Heights.

Parents as Teachers at Hillside will receive a portion of the funding to continue their work helping parents give their children the best start in life and to increase their child’s school readiness and success.
