Child Care State Funding, Programs and Resources

Whether you are looking to start a child care program or are a seasoned owner, there are many resources available to help fund your programs. Each state has a primary agency or organization responsible for subsidizing child care programs through federal and state grants, and there are many others including CCR&Rs, shared services organizations, ECE community leaders and regional NAEYC affiliates that offer child care programs and services to help you provide sustainable child care programs.

With the expiration of federal funds impacting child care providers and families, we must come together to ensure funding remains a top priority for policymakers and advocates. Many states have moved forward to supplement expiring federal funds. However, a majority have yet to take action. What happens in state capitols will make a difference to child care providers and families. 

Champions of Mixed Delivery Monthly Call
