Grants that are due this month: 

Child Care Capital Program

  • Quality child care is critical to New York families as it provides a safe environment for children, while also providing the educational foundation for the next generation of New Yorkers. Working families struggle to find quality programs in their communities in every corner of the State. To effectively address New York’s continuing need for affordable, quality child care services, New York State has made $50 million available for the NYS Child Care Capital Program (CCCP). The Child Care Capital Program was created to provide funding to assist childcare providers in expanding the capacity of their programs. 
  • The Child Care Capital Program will provide reimbursement grants for the design, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, equipment, and other capital assets for existing or proposed not-for-profit or for-profit child day care centers licensed according to 18 NYCRR 418-1, school-age child care programs registered according to 18 NYCRR 414 and Article 47 permitted programs. 

Early Childhood Foundation

  • The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood is an incubator of promising research and development projects that appear likely to improve the welfare of young children from infancy through 7 years, in the United States. 
  • Welfare is broadly defined as support, acculturation, societal integration, and childcare. Grants are only made if a successful project outcome will likely be of significant interest to other professionals, within the grantee’s field of endeavor, and would have a direct benefit and potential national application. 
  • The Foundation’s goal is to provide seed money to implement those imaginative proposals that exhibit the greatest chance of improving the lives of young children, on a national scale. Because of the Foundation’s limited funding capability, it seeks to maximize a grant’s potential impact. 

Grant Watch: 120 New York Grants for Preschools, Early Childhood Grants

  • Grants for early childhood programs, grants for childcare, and daycare programs to promote literacy, nutrition, and physical activity at preschools including food gardens, outdoor classrooms, and playgrounds.
