Introducing the Rhode Island Child Care and Early Learning Facilities Fund
We are pleased to report that LISC has been selected by the Rhode Island Department of Education to serve as the vendor for the new Early Learning Facilities Project, funded through the Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge. Under this project, LISC will deliver enhanced training and technical assistance on facilities, including expanding our technical assistance to support public schools and preschools along with traditional community-based child care facilities. LISC will also administer a grant pool designed to provide resources that assist child care centers serving high need populations with their facility issues. The work of the Early Learning Facilities Project will be closely aligned with our existing Child Care Facilities Fund work. The new Rhode Island Child Care and Early Learning Facilities Fund (RICCELFF) is expected to be fully operational at the beginning of 2015 with grant funds available soon after. Stay tuned for additional details!
