Default DC Grants

Have you any of you applied for day/child care grants and actually received one? I have been looking around, but can't find any. I'm in Michigan if it matters.

I have looked and looked. I don't think that there are any available right now because of the economy; the money just isn't here.

Most are through your state . To find them check with your local R& R agency ours is Childcare Aware

a 500 award for the project and 500 for the teacher to keep plus a trip to Philidelphia is the TLLCF/Childrens Tylenol Childcare Teacher Awards . The entry is due Dec 6th I believe. There is still time if your work fast.

Check with your local Child Care Resource & Referral.

I serve on my grant review board.

Grants applications in my state usually begin in August and run through the end of October.

Providers can request grants for anything that helps their business.

Toys, curriculum, equipment, etc

I've gotten several grants (anywhere from $500-$1500) over the years.

I am in the south where the economic situation has taken a toll on state programs that offered assistance to child care programs. However, there is still funds that pay for early childhood education i.e. CDA, Associates, Bachelors or technical certificates.

I am in MI also and received one for $3500 in 2005. They are no longer available because of economic reasons. There used to be two different ones from the State of MI a start up grant and the one I got.

You could try searching for a grant from a private entity, online, I do periodically. Just google grants, day care.

Most of our grants in Iowa are hooked to Childnet or QRS. I just completed the Childnet certification and will get a $500 grant

I'm in Michigan too, I remember during orientation they talked to us about possible grants but I doubt it is something they give out easily, if they even still do

please let me know if you learn more, I would love to redo my playground from top to bottom
