Cohen Announces $1.1 Million to Help Memphis-area Infants and Toddlers
[MEMPHIS, TN] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today announced a $1,126,300 federal grant for Early Head Start programs at Porter-Leath. Early Head Start provides early, continuous, intensive, and comprehensive child development and family support services to low-income infants and toddlers as well as pregnant women and their families. “This funding is an investment in Memphis children, an investment in Memphis families, and a down payment on our city’s future,” said Congressman Cohen. “It will pay dividends as today’s children grow into tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, doctors, scientists, and productive members of our society. This is an important program that I am proud to support.” Porter-Leath has been a primary resource for Memphis' at-risk children and families for more than 160 years. By focusing on the essential building blocks of healthy development, Porter-Leath not only gives children access to the tools they need to succeed, but also provides a sense of hope tha
Cohen: GOP Education Plan Slashes Millions for Shelby County Preschoolers, Takes Hope and Opportunity from Our Children
[MEMPHIS, TN] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today blasted Congressional Republican efforts to eliminate a program Shelby County Schools expects to receive a reported $7 million from for preschool services. The elimination of the Preschool Development Grant program, as proposed in the Republican education plan awaiting a vote in the House and Senate, could prevent nearly 7,500 low- and moderate-income Tennessee children from attending pre-school, according to the U.S. Department of Education. “The Republican education plan would be disastrous for Memphis children and families,” said Congressman Cohen. “We know that children who receive support from programs like preschool and Head Start have a better shot at successful lives, but the Republican plan would take away their hope and opportunity by slashing millions from those same programs. We should be expanding preschools like the President has called for, not closing their doors on our children.” President Obama’s 2016

The Memphis Health Center, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)3 community health center, provides a comprehensive array of primary and preventive health and dental services to the uninsured/underinsured and medically underserved populations of Memphis, Shelby and Fayette Counties.

[MEMPHIS, TN] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today issued the following statement announcing that he will support the P5+1 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to prevent a nuclear weapons-equipped Iran: “I know that, by supporting this agreement in Congress, many longtime—even lifelong—friends will be disappointed but I hope they will understand that it is the result of careful consideration and countless classified briefings as well as meetings with officials at the Vienna headquarters of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the agency responsible for enforcing the agreement’s historically robust inspections regime. “I’ve also spoken personally with President Obama and Secretary Kerry about the agreement, met with U.S Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Dan Baer and numerous European as well as Asian officials and diplomats, listened closely to hundreds of constituents who oppose and support it, and have seriously weighed al
