As President Obama has proposed a new program to forward wider availability of preschool programs, the White House has developed state-by-state estimates of funding levels for each jurisdiction that would participate. From the Maryland summary:
Under the President’s proposal, Maryland is estimated to receive $42,400,000 in the first year it participates in the Preschool for All program. This funding, combined with an initial estimated state match of $4,200,000, would serve about 5,175 children from low-and moderate-income families in the first year of the program alone.
More detail about the proposed Early Learning program is available online. From the US Department of Education summary:
The President’s budget proposes $75 billion to provide high-quality preschool for all four-year olds. Funding would be provided to states and distributed to local school districts, or local school districts in partnership with other early learning providers, to offer high-quality preschool programs. An additional $750 million would provide for competitive grants to states to strengthen their early learning systems. Learn more in the early learning budget summary.
