Even in my own state of Pennsylvania the US Dept. Of Welfare has worked with a childcare grant program which awards grants to both for-profit and non-profit daycare services that will serve or agree to serve children from low-income families. The minimum grant award amount is $50,000! The maximum is $1 Million Dollars! Special consideration will be given to those that provide childcare services during non-traditional hours. Non-profits can also apply on the behalf of for-profits. Contact information is provided via regular snail mail address, phone and fax number and website.
