The Civic Childcare Enhancement Grant program is for non-profit licensed, group childcare, preschool, school-aged care, and occasional child care programs that serve primarily high-need families.

Grants are intended to support the quality and affordability of licensed programs to ensure access to those families most in need of the support. Funds are to be used for program enhancement and not for capital expenditures.
