This is good news for areas in the state that struggle with poverty:

*The BUILD Initiative - Boston, MA*
Award: $314,884

A cooperative agreement between IMLS and the BUILD Initiative will create
deliberate and mutually beneficial connections between the efforts of
museums and libraries and those of early childhood systems’ builders to
support the growth and development of children from birth to age eight,
with an emphasis on children from birth to age five. The partnership will
build relationships across the fields/sectors and embed connections in ways
that can be replicated and sustained. All objectives will be achieved
through engagement with library, museum and early learning leaders in five
pilot states: Arizona, Georgia,* Michigan*, Pennsylvania and Washington.
