Program Information

The Child Care Development Fund Grant is a competitive opportunity for public schools and colleges/universities.  The goal of this funding is to increase early childhood program availability and quality in public schools and colleges/universities in order to provide a safe environment that meets the individual, developmental, social, emotional, and physical needs of children ages 6 weeks to kindergarten entry.  These programs meet the needs of working parents through extended hours, five days a week and typically open year round.  Programs awarded in FY14 will be in their first renewal for FY15, therefore there will be no new grant opportunities in FY15.
