Fiscal Impact Costs for the book-lending program (“StoryCycles”) will be paid from the First 5 Contra Costa School-Readiness Grant funds of $109,262.00 to be received by MDAE for its annual First 5 contract for school readiness programs (refer to First 5 Contra Costa School-Readiness Grant Contract also on the 6/24/19 Board agenda for review and approval).
