NEW Local Grant Opportunity for Early Childhood Education Programs!

The availability of early childhood education is vital to our community’s economic recovery! To support YOU, our community of early childhood education providers, as you plan to Sustain, Rebuild & Reinvent your programs, Alliance for Kids, in partnership with the Pikes Peak Workforce Center, is launching a NEW local grant opportunity. Early childhood education (ECE) programs and family child care homes (FCCHs), which meet the eligibility criteria and in the order in which applications are received, will be funded until funding is no longer available. This grant is to reimburse personnel and operational costs due to COVID-19 from March 10th – November 30th.
