Wave 5 of Early Learning Facility Grants will be open starting on October 5th. Applications are due no later than midnight on October 26, 2015. Applications in all priority categories will be accepted during Wave 5. Early learning facility grants are available to assist qualified organizations with addressing urgent facility issues. Priorities for these funds include: fixing a facility issue that is compromising a program’s DCYF licensing status, major health and safety concerns, and issues that are preventing a program from moving up the quality ladder.
If you think you have a project that may be eligible, but aren’t sure, please feel free to call our office and ask! The technical assistance team can be reached at 401.331.0131 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Note: Wave 5 will be the FINAL wave for early learning facility grants funded by the Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge Grant.
