Child Care Grant Program
The City of Richmond annually accepts and reviews online grant applications for Child Care Capital Grants and Child Care Professional and Program Development Grants. These grants help to support:
- equipment and furnishings
- professional and program development support
Review the Program Guidelines (links below) before beginning the application process to ensure that the goals and objectives, eligibility criteria, assessment considerations, and review process of the Grant Program being applied for are understood.
The Grant Applicant User Guide listed below provides a step-by-step guide through the City Grants Web-based System. To begin the application process, access the web-based City Grants Application System by clicking on the link below. Firefox and Google Chrome are recommended browsers.
Applicants who received a previous City Grant will need to submit a final report by opening the previous application and completing the Grant Use/Final report section. This must be submitted prior to beginning a new application.
The Child Care Capital Grant Program typically opens in late summer or early fall of each year. Check back for the dates of the next intake.
An information session will be held on September 27, 2022 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. to provide information about the 2023 Grant process. All applicants are strongly encouraged to attend this one hour virtual event. This will be an opportunity to learn about any changes to this year’s Grant process or Program Guidelines and to ask questions. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to confirm your attendance and receive the link to the virtual meeting.
