INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana has awarded more than $1.4 million in early education capacity-building grants to applicants with pre-kindergarten programs in 12 counties .

Those receiving grants of more than $200,000 each are the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, the Early Childhood Coalition for Wayne County Kids, and the Marshall County Early Childhood Coalition. Other grant winners receiving lesser amounts are located in Bartholomew, DeKalb, Porter, Newton, Madison, Montgomery, Spencer, Tippecanoe and Johnson counties.
