HOLYOKE – Holyoke Community College has received two grants from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care totaling $2.4 million to fund a new professional development program and training workshops for early childhood educators.
HCC is the lead agent on a $2 million Career Pathways Grant in partnership with Berkshire Community College and Greenfield Community College. The grant covers tuition, fees and associated costs like textbooks, laptops and the $420 Childhood Development Associate Plus (CDA Plus) credentialing fee. This allows early educators to attend classes for no cost other than transportation.
