HB 74 – ApSeed Pilot Project/Funds

Primary House Sponsors: Rep. Harry Warren (R-Rowan); Rep. Hugh Blackwell (R-Burke); Rep. Julia Howard (R-Davie, Rowan); Rep. Donny Lambeth (R-Forsyth)


This bill would require DHHS to establish a three-year pilot program implementing the “ApSeed” program, which seeks to prepare preschool-aged children for pre-K through a tablet learning device.

The following counties would be required to participate: Forsyth, Hoke, New Hanover, Watauga, and Yadkin.

This bill would appropriate $2.5M for each year of the 2021-23 biennium to cover the costs of the project.
