Ready by Five Millage Information Session

Grand Rapids, Michigan 49504

The Ready by Five Millage is the first millage in the state of Michigan focused solely on young children and their families. Kent County voters overwhelmingly approved it in November 2018, to provide dedicated and sustainable funding for evidenced-based services that improve children’s health, school readiness, and well-being.

A renewal of Ready by Five will be back on the ballot in the August 2024 primary election.

Representatives from the Essential Needs Task Force will discuss how the millage is impacting the community, how parents help decide how money is spent, and how you can support the renewal campaign. We’re looking forward to meaningful conversations about how the work of the Ready by Five Millage aligns with your work.
