The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) has partnered with Executives Partnering to Invest in Children (EPIC) to create a 5-month Design Lab which will help employers, or community partnerships that include employers, prepare and plan for the creation of an on-site or near-site child care program. Employers including for-profit, non-profit, and government entities are all welcome to participate. 2021 legislation (Senate Bill 236) created an $8.8 Million Employer-Based Child Care Facility Grant Program to provide support for these projects in Colorado.
The Employer-Based Child Care Design Lab will be kicking off soon. Executives Partnering to Invest in Children (EPIC) is leading this project. If you have any questions contact Nicole Riehl or contact Angela Ben-Zekry. Businesses that are interested in the Employer-Based Child Care Grants can fill out this initial interest application form and then they will receive the full application soon.
• From October 2021 through February 2022, EPIC will host bi-weekly design sessions (via video call) for lab participants to build knowledge and access tools to launch a child care program at or near your business location
