Grants to support child care providers

Everyone benefits when child care providers get the support they need to deliver the care that kids deserve. More children get a chance to learn and grow. More families get the lifeline they need to have joyful connections and stable homes. More communities thrive.

If you’re a child care provider or a community-based organization that supports child care providers, learn more about the grant today.

The Oregon Child Care Capacity Building Fund

The new grants are part of a $22 million fund created by the Oregon State Legislature to make sure more families have access to the child care they need.

The grants will provide financial support to child care providers and community-based organizations working to expand child care in Oregon. The Child Care Capacity Building Fund opens in phases.

Phase 1 funding is closed. We received over 850 interest forms totaling more than $170 million in requests. Due to the amount and scale of interest forms submitted, Phase 2 is postponed until fall 2023. We will provide an update in the summer. Subscribe for more information.

If you have already applied, you will receive an update by the end of June 2023. You will receive the information through Submittable. Check here for more information.

When I was ready to expand my child care program, there were tremendous barriers to funding. To have this grant opportunity back then would’ve been a dream.
