Press Release
Washington, DC - Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik announced the Washington County Economic Opportunity Council, Inc. will receive a $4,472,455 grant for their L.E.A.P. Head Start and Early Head Start Projects. The council has five operating centers across Washington County, serving hundreds of children by providing education resources and support to them and their families.
 
“I am very proud to announce that more than $4 million taxpayer dollars will return to the district to improve the education and development of children in Washington County. Community-based programs for kids are more important than ever, as the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in many North Country children missing out on in-person learning and tragically falling behind,” said Congresswoman Stefanik.
