The Preschool Development Grant provides $8.1 million in funding for the Dream Up! grant program. Through this program, 30 communities will receive strategic planning support and $75,000 in grant funding. Additional $5,000 stipends will be allocated to participating child care providers who submit updated business plans during the strategic planning process. Through a collaborative community approach, teams of community stakeholders, will work to evaluate, plan, sustain, and expand existing child care, and support new child care programs.

Teams are encourage to include a cross-sector of professionals. Teams of invested community members may include (but are not limited to):

  • Local business leaders
  • Community and civic organizations
  • Economic development programs
  • Child care programs
  • School districts
  • Local government
  • City or county administrations

Individual child care programs are not eligible for this program as a stand-alone applicant, but may be a part of the team.
