15 additional counties and former Early Education Matching Grant (EEMG) sites selected for FSSA’s On My Way Pre-K expansion

Governor Eric J. Holcomb and the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) announced that 15 additional Indiana counties are now eligible to participate in On My Way Pre-K, making prekindergarten available in 2018 to 4-year-olds from low-income families in those counties. Earlier this year in House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1004-2017, the Indiana General Assembly expanded the program from five pilot counties to 20 counties and included current EEMG sites as eligible providers.

The new counties added to the On My Way Pre-K program are Bartholomew, DeKalb, Delaware, Elkhart, Floyd, Grant, Harrison, Howard, Kosciusko, Madison, Marshall, Monroe, St. Joseph, Tippecanoe and Vigo.

Participating local providers in these counties will be expected to enroll children in On My Way Pre-K for the 2018/2019 school year, with the possibility of a limited program beginning in January of 2018.

These additional counties and On My Way Pre-K Agreement sites will join Allen, Jackson, Lake, Marion and Vanderburgh counties, which have provided early education via the On My Way Pre-K program since 2015 as first authorized by the General Assembly.

The current Early Education Matching Grant sites are now eligible On My Way Pre-K providers if

  1. They received a matching grant before it's repeal in the state fiscal year beginning June 30, 2016, and ending before July 1, 2017.
  2. They meet the requirements of an eligible provider for On My Way Pre-K.
  3. They participate in the prekindergarten pilot program each year continuously.
