It's Time to Advocate for FY 24

The Early On Michigan Foundation recognizes the significant investment in Early On in recent years.  It is imperative for our youngest citizens that we continue to see continued investment at least at the same pace, if not great.  Our ask for FY 24 is an investment of $42 million, an increase from FY 23 by $21 million.

Governor and Legislature Increase Funds for Early On!

Fiscal Year 23 sees an increase in funding for Early On, to $21,250,000, up $7 million from last year.  This is significant and the result great bi-partisan leadership on behalf of Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Legislature.  While this is an important increase, the Early On Michigan Foundation acknowledges that we have a way to go to reach our estimated need of $68 million in school aid funding.
