Twenty-two nonprofit groups in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa are benefiting from $4.2 million in grants from the Iowa West Foundation.

The biggest grants included a $1.1 million award to support preschool programs at Pottawattamie County schools and a $1 million grant to support improvements at the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha. Foundation President Pete Tulipana says early childhood education plays an important role in children's success in school.

One of the other major grants of $850,000 will help Council Bluffs improve the area near the eastern end of the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge that connects with Omaha.
