BISMARCK -- Community Action Partnership Inc. of Dickinson is receiving a $1.04 million federal grant for Head Start and Early Head Start, North Dakota’s congressional delegation announced Friday.

The funding will be used to support the more than 200 children enrolled in the programs, which promote parent involvement and child readiness for kindergarten.

“In a part of the state where access to affordable childcare and early childhood programs is limited, especially since the population in the area has grown so rapidly -- these funds will make a significant difference in the lives of the hundreds of children and their families who participate in the program,” U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., said in a statement.

The funds are provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The grant project period is listed as Feb. 1 to Jan. 31, 2020.

“I am pleased Head Start facilitators in Dickinson will have this extra assistance to empower their mission of improving the education and health of young children in need,” U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., said in a statement.
