"Where Do I Apply For A Daycare Grant?"

Hello im a young women living in california. I'm in the process of geting licensed. i ant to apply for a grant of 100,000-200,000$ to open a child daycare in a house. where do i go to apply for these grants? where do i find them

However I find that you are asking for quite a lot of money to start a daycare in your home. I hope that you have a very good reason for asking for that kind of money.

Number 2 - the only way to find these grant programs is look for them. However since you are not a client you will have to find this information yourself. If you take a look at my grant pages you will see that I mention 2 grant programs for those that want to start their own business. One is for $20,000 and the other is for $100,000! If these programs sound of interest to you then you should definitely look them up to see if you qualify to apply for them.

Do the work yourself instead of asking someone else to do the work for you. There are grant programs are out there and I should know because I do this for a living! The fact that you haven't found them yet doesn't mean that they aren't out there - it just means that you haven't found them yet.

yes i searched your website but it seems like i get the run around when i got to grant sites. im trying to avoid fees to get grant information. would you be able to help me? do u help out those to get grants and charge a fee later i want to know and i want to apply for a grant but i just need helP! please thankX

Here is an excerpt from my Payment Information Page:

How to Hire a Freelance Grantwriter

Count on having to pay a freelancer before you get any grants. Very few professionals will accept a percentage or commission or deferred payment. If you don't have the cash needed, collect enough from your board, staff and volunteers to pay for an hour or two with a freelancer. He or she can clarify some initial steps you could take on your own and suggest some potential grantors for you to research and cultivate. Don't ask a freelance grantwriter to volunteer their services. Seasoned grantseekers get asked constantly to work for free. If they do volunteer, it's usually for organizations or individuals they already have a relationship with. The fact that you're a non-profit carries no weight – that's all they work with!"

You also have to remember that it is not only the government that has grant programs.

You have to be a client before I will attempt to find you any grant programs that you are eligible for. If you are not a client then you will have to do the work and find the information yourself or you will have to find someone else to do it for you. As you can see from my daycare and grant info pages there are many grant programs out there for those that want to start their own business - but they have to know how to do it right!
