It’s an exciting time for education in Minnesota. In the past two years, the state has received nearly $90 million in federal funds to support a range of initiatives aimed at finding effective approaches that improve educational outcomes for children in our community. Federal Minnesota grants include: Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge, Human Capital Research Collaborative Midwest CPC Expansion and Northside Achievement Zone’s Promise Neighborhood. We hope to expand our website to include other grant partners over time.
Greater Twin Cities United Way, in partnership with The McKnight Foundation, have launched this website, Learn Together MN, to keep our community connected with what’s happening around the federal education grants and to capture essential lessons for our region and the nation.
