Regional Grants

The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS), working in cooperation with Lakes & Prairies Child care Aware, announces the availability of child care provider grants.

These grant dollars are available to all direct care providers developing child care services, for the following purposes: expansion, interim financing, facility improvement, equipment, training and development. The grants also target dollars specifically to direct-care providers caring for infant and toddlers, school-age youth, and providers increasing the cultural responsiveness of Minnesota’s child care system.

Regional Grants are available in the month of September only.

All completed applications must be postmarked by September 25, 2017 to be eligible for review.
