Facilities Improvement Funding Available for Family Child Care Homes in Colorado!
To address the declining number of licensed slots within family child care homes and to improve quality within home-based learning environments, the Buell Foundation and Daniels Fund have granted funds to the Early Childhood Council Leadership Alliance (ECCLA) to provide facility improvement funding to family child care homes in Colorado. This opportunity is intended to help family child care homes start up, expand, or maintain consistent operations, increase capacity, and reduce the number of family child care homes closing their doors due to financial restrictions.
To submit an application go to www.ecclacolorado.org/fcchgrant/. Applications are online and available in English and Spanish. Technical assistance is available if other languages are needed.
Online Applications are due September 27th at 11:59 PM. ECCLA will host two optional technical assistance webinars for applicants on August 11 and September 9. Register for a webinar, submit an application, and review frequently asked questions at www.ecclacolorado.org/fcchgrant/.
