U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist secured two grants worth over $13 million for Pinellas County healthcare and early learning programs.
One, worth $8,228,735, will go to Lutheran Services of Florida to aid its Head Start program. The funds will support early education programming for children from low-income families.
The second grant, totaling $5,308,568, will be awarded to Evara Health to help patient care and outreach to low-income and underserved Pinellas residents.
“Strengthening our health care and early education systems is key to improving quality of life for my neighbors in Pinellas – particularly those who are low-income and underserved,” Crist said.
