The State of Vermont turned to Millennia for consultation on what turned out to be two successful applications to the U.S. Department ofEducation. Together, these grants resulted in about $70M in anticipated funding for early childhood programs and infrastructure.

The first grant was a Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge application (RTT-ELC). The second was a Preschool Development Grant-Expansion (PDG) grant.

Both of these grants were highly competitive. Vermont was one of only 18 states to receive PDG funding, and Vermont's proposal was among the most highly rated in the competition.
