Traverse Bay EDC gives $10K boost to local Great Start

The Great Start for Success Network will have a few more funds to keep some of their top-notch programs moving forward thanks to a grant from the Traverse Bay Economic Development Corps.

The Traverse Bay EDC recently gave a $10,000 grant to the Great Start Traverse Bay/Manistee Collaborative. The funds will be used to create a child care system that will be sustainable and practical for rural areas.

"Many of the EDC’s investments are for today’s economy," says Don Coe, the EDC board chairman, who presented the Great Start representatives with the funds. "This investment is about tomorrow’s economy."

The project’s initial phase involves identifying and assessing child care resources in the region and determining where there are gaps and needs in the system. The next phase will expand the effort into Wexford and Missaukee counties.
