Start-Up Grants are Available
Since 2017, over $20,000 in Start-Up Grants has been allocated to child care providers in our service delivery area. Eligible providers have used the funding to purchase equipment, materials, and classes required to obtain regulation (ie: fencing, safety gates, developmentally appropriate materials for a variety of age groups, smoke detectors, etc.). Contact Childcaring to learn more about start-up grant eligibility. If you became regulated within the past three months you may be eligible to apply.
