Access to Quality Child Care Grant Guidelines
This funding is provided through the Access to Quality Child Care Grant, funded by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE). The Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF) has been selected to administer the grant program. The Access to Quality Child Care Grant aims to increase the supply of child care services for infants and toddlers, which may include establishing new or expanding child development facilities serving infants and toddlers. Specifically, this grant seeks to increase the District’s infant and toddler child care supply by September 2023, through the provision of sub-grants and technical assistance.
Funding is available to eligible early care and education center-based providers or to current or future providers that plan to open a new center or expand an existing center. The following sub-grants are available:
- New Center Development
- Pre-Development (for Child Development Centers only)
- Expansion Grants for Child Development Centers
- Expansion Grants for Child Development Homes
Additional Information can be found in the Guidelines linked here. Interested applicants for the Access to Quality Child Care Grant must first complete and submit an intake form.
LIIF will review intake forms to determine what type of sub-grant a child development facility or organization/individual may be eligible to participate in and invite those that meet “readiness” criteria to complete the grant application. More information on the application process can be found in the grant guidelines document.
