Applications are available on the First Children's Finance website.
Child care facility revitalization grants are available through First Children’s Finance.
The grant program will operate for the next two years, with applications accepted every three months between spring 2022 and spring 2024. The first application period is March 29 to April 12. Applications are available on the First Children's Finance website.
Facility revitalization grants can used by Minnesota child care centers, family child care providers, certified child care centers and legal unlicensed providers registered with CCAP to address facility improvements and related equipment. Providers can receive grant amounts depending on the center type.
The grants can be used towards completing facility improvements, minor renovations, and related equipment and services, such as assistance to meet licensing requirements to establish, maintain, or expand licensed and legal unlicensed child care sites, according to the First Children's Finance website. Grant funds may not be used for construction or major renovation of facilities.
