Another State Grant Program For For-Profit Daycares

Here is yet more information about another grant program in one state:

This government grant program provides grants for the start-up of new or expansion of existing child care facilities. These funds, awarded through a competitive application process, primarily focus on programs serving children age birth to three.

A new Request for Application for these competitive funds has an anticipated release date of late March 2008 for the new Request for Application.

More information about this government grant program may be accessed at the website. Once you have accessed their website, you may review the requirements for this year's grants.

The Department of Social Services issued a request for application hereafter referred to as an application, for the start up of new or the expansion of existing child care facilities for children ages birth through 24 months. Last year's application can be used as an example for the 2008 grant application. Future grant applications will be available in the early spring of 2008. You can find moe information about this grant program by going to the grant program's website.

You can also submit your name or the name of your daycare / childcare business to their website so that you can be put on their notification list - meaning that you (or your daycare) will be notified of more information about this grant program. (I have already added my own name to this mailing list!)

There is also another funding program which focuses on programs that serve children ages three and four. For more information on this project, you can contact them by phone.

For information about other potential grants, you can visit their website or call their toll free number.

The state also has a scholarship and compensation opportunity for center-based and family child care home providers.
