Child Care Challenge Funding Opportunity

November 3, 2021

Dear Child Care Providers,

A new round of funding is available through the Child Care Challenge Funding Opportunity. Applications are due by December 10, 2021.

The purpose of this fund is to encourage and enable businesses, nonprofit organizations, and consortiums to establish local child care facilities and increase the availability of quality, affordable child care for working Iowans. To support this work, the fund will award competitive grants to support community and regional initiatives. Iowa Workforce Development and the Department of Human Services are seeking collaborative applications that propose new, cutting-edge ideas as well as proven strategies.

The purpose of the Notice of Funding Opportunity is to solicit applications that will enable us to award grant funding to match local investment and support the goals of the Child Care Challenge Program and Future Ready Iowa.

For information on this funding and the application visit Child Care Challenge.
