ACF's Home Child Care Grant Application

Funding available for home childcare providers - Apply Now 
Funding is being offered by Aspen Community Foundation in conjunction with Garfield County DHS and with support from the Early Childhood Network and Kids First to better support licensed home childcare programs, especially in Western Garfield County. With the recent change in state licensing rules for home providers, our communities may see a decrease in licensed programs and therefore an increase in childcare providers not connected to a system of support and quality improvement.

The funding provides financial support to meet licensing requirements and incentivize providers to meet quality improvement goals. ACF, through its Cradle to Career Initiative, seeks to increase licensed home childcare programs in the Parachute to Aspen region. Priority will be given to programs seeking to expand access to licensed infant and toddler care. This funding is made possible through ACF's Giving Network.
