How are Judy Centers funded?

Judy Centers were written into Maryland law in May 2000 (Annotated Code of Maryland, Education Article, §5-215) and are important components of the act entitled, "Judith P. Hoyer Early Child Care and Education Enhancement Program." Since that time, additional funding streams, including federal, private, and local, have resulted in expansion of the number of Judy Centers from 24 in 2002 to 52 today.
