Contract for services to California IHEs, nonprofit organizations, and local educational agencies to expand subsidized, statewide pre-K childcare services. Priority will be given to educational agencies in underserved areas. Funding is intended to provide affordable, full-time, quality childcare to three and four-year-old children.
The intent of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to expand California State Preschool Program (CSPP) services statewide with an emphasis on full-day/full-year services. To expand CSPP services, this RFA funding opportunity is available to existing CSPP contracted agencies, to existing contracted agencies that do not have a CSPP contract, or to new agencies without Early Learning and Care Division (ELCD) program contracts. These funds are intended to increase the availability of CSPP services to eligible children. In accordance with existing law, priority will be given to applicant agencies that will be serving the highest percentage of 4-year old children. Funding preference shall be provided to underserved areas as identified by the Local Child Care and Development Planning Council (LPC).
Awards will be made in the following order:
Eligible childcare programs provide an educational component that is culturally, linguistically, and developmentally appropriate for the children served. These programs also provide meals and snacks to children, parent education, referrals to health and social services for families, and staff development opportunities to employees.
Eligible costs include:

If the proposed sites/classrooms are not open within three years from the date of the proposed award letter, the applicant will receive formal notice from the ELCD that the award is rescinded.
