“We are seeing, experiencing that decline in enrollment so I think it is important that families if they are unsure if they are eligible that they should apply anyway just to be able to see and to verify if they are eligible to receive this kind of help for pre k,” said Tiffany Bailey, vice president of community impact of United Way Allen County.
