Funding for Supplies and Other Essentials
Regional Grants provide funds to help cover the cost of supplies, equipment, technology, and training. Grant funds are offered annually and are awarded on a competitive basis to qualified child care programs. Regional Grants are administered through our District offices. Grant applications are available September 1 of each year and must be submitted by September 25 for consideration. Each year, the Department of Human Services and Child Care Aware determine grant priorities. This year’s priorities are strategies and activities that increase the capacity of providers to prepare young children for school and life.
Some of our District offices also have funding available year-round to help with program start-up costs and emergency situations. For more information on available grants, grant priorities, and application instructions, contact your local Grant Administrator.
