      Partner Up! Grant Program 

           Helping businesses secure affordable child care slots for employees

 The Partner Up! grant program will provide $10 million in funding to support child care for Wisconsin’s businesses. Find more information about Partner Up! here: https://dcf.wisconsin.gov/childcare/projectgrowth/partner-up

Through Partner Up!, businesses can reserve subsidized slots in regulated local child care programs for their employees’ use. The employer will contribute part of the true cost of care for each slot reserved, and Partner Up! will contribute the remaining amount. Participating workers will receive accessible, high-quality child care at little-to-no out-of-pocket cost to them.

Updated 5/2022

The application period for Partner Up is now closed.  

On April 25, 2022, businesses who were chosen for a Partner Up grant should have received an Intent to Award letter from The WI Department of Children and Families (DCF) informing you that your business has been selected to receive a Partner Up! grant.   

If you did not receive an Intent to Award letter or a Waitlist letter, please check your spam folder or call CCR&R at 920-886-1211 to check on the status of your application.

Child Care Resource & Referral will be available throughout the grant process to assist with Partner Up! questions.   

*Please note- Child care providers DO NOT need to fill out the application unless you are applying to subsidize care for the children of your own staff members!  Child care programs interested in accepting children through Partner Up! should contact CCR&R Fox Valley at 920-886-1211. 




Partner Up! is a new grant program from the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families’ Project Growth, Supporting Families Together Association, and Wisconsin’s nine CCR&Rs.
