Distance Learning Support grants are a collaboration between United Way of Olmsted County as the funding partner and Cradle 2 Career as the implementation partner. As schools around the country start the academic year, it became clear that the pandemic would amplify educational disparities. That's why we are supporting programs that provide high-quality distance learning support for K-12 students from low-income families, BIPOC students, and students with disabilities.
