Early Childhood Development program coordinator Chery Bloomquist received a $12,000 grant as part of the Caring for MI Future initiative.  

Funded by the American Rescue Plan, the grant seeks to increase the number of students receiving the Child Development Associate credential while ultimately increasing Michigan’s early childhood workforce. 

This grant supports the objective outlined in initiative 4 of the strategic plan as the college works to advance community engagement, economic and workforce development and innovative opportunities for lifelong learning.
