Grants to British Columbia nonprofit societies and nonprofit childcare providers in eligible regions to build capacity, support programming, and promote professional development in eligible locations. Priority will be given to applicants supporting infant, toddler, and school-age care; applicants that have accessed or are willing to access other sources of funding; and applicants that 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. Eligible applicants serve the City of Richmond.
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 beneficial to the broader child care community in Richmond, rather than to a few specific individuals or centers. The necessity and benefits of the initiative to the child care community must be demonstrated. Funding for individual staff to register for or attend courses or workshops is not eligible under this grant program.
