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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Angela Ben-Zekry (email@example.com). 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
