Start Up Grants – Limited Availability!
Startup Grants are now available to recently licensed or soon-to-be licensed programs. Grants may also be available to programs that are expanding their child care license.
Programs can apply for up to $1000 to help with start-up costs. Startup grants cover items that are required to open your license including reimbursement for approved required training, Fire Marshal fees, and equipment and materials required to open a child care license.
Programs must have had their initial visit with their licensor before submitting an application. Applicants need to attach a letter of recommendation from their licensor with the application. All items requested should be included in the letter from the licensor (subject to Grant Administrator and Grant Committee approval).
If a program is in the process of getting licensed while a Startup Grant is awarded, they must submit a copy of the active license before reimbursement will be made.
