State didn't apply for some grants to aid children

Posted:

NASHVILLE (AP) - A report by the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth finds the state didn't apply for some competitive grants that would have benefited programs.

According to The Tennessean, the study did quantify the state receives huge shares of funding from the federal government.

But the commission said Tennessee's government grant writers encounter obstacles in trying to compete for funds that would aid children and families.

The obstacles could include being short staffed, not having sufficient time or not being able to come up with matching state funding.

The report did not attempt to estimate the amount of grant money not sought.
