Grants to Richmond, British Columbia nonprofit societies that offer childcare services to support program and professional development, as well as capital acquisition or upgrades. Funds may be used for facilities, spaces, programs, furnishings and equipment, training, and workshops.

Child care grants are available for both: (1) capital and (2) professional and program development expenses. These purposes are outlined below.

(1) Capital Grants Capital grants are provided to acquire or upgrade physical assets in licensed child care facilities such as property, buildings and equipment. Funding is available for a one-time capital expense that will improve the quality, availability and accessibility of licensed child care in Richmond, such as: equipment, furnishings, renovations or playground improvements. For equipment to qualify as a capital expenditure, it must be for longterm use (e.g. an easel would qualify; art supplies would not). 

(2) Professional and Program Development Grants Non-profit societies developing or providing professional and program development opportunities in Richmond (e.g. training, workshops) are eligible to apply for funding. The initiatives must be available and of benefit to the broader child care community in Richmond, rather than to a few specific individuals or centres. The need for and benefit to the child care community must be demonstrated. 

Funds are available to support childcare operators through the Provincial Child Care BC Program, including: 

  • Child Care Operating Funding- to assist with the day-to-day costs of running a licensed child care facility. 
  • Training and Professional Development Funding – to assist with professional development and upgrading. 

Priority will be given to applications for facilities or programs that: 

  • Support infant/toddler and school-age care, identified as priorities in the 2017 – 2022 Richmond Child Care Needs Assessment and Strategy; 
  • Have accessed, or are willing to access other available sources of funding, including Child Care Operating Funding, Child Care BC Maintenance Fund, Child Care BC Relocation Fund, New Spaces Grant; and 
  • Enroll families who are receiving the Affordable Child Care Benefit (formerly Child Care Subsidy)  and, if eligible, participate in the Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative.
