Funding Opportunities for Programs

Administrators for child care programs can explore available funding opportunities — directly from the Office of Early Childhood (OEC) and from other agencies and groups. 

Grants and other funding resources can help your program grow:

  • Afford resources — from educational materials to playground equipment
  • Increase access to child care for low-income families
  • Offer professional development and training opportunities for staff
  • Expand your program and serve more children in the community
