Communities for Kids


This funding is intended for child care providers in Seward County serving children ages 0-5 in full day/full year child care programs who are increasing the number of children they serve. Eligible programs include Family Home I, Family Home II, and Child Care Centers. These funds can be used for expansion of current capacity or start-up of a new program.

Any reimbursable funds are intended solely for child care capacity expansion or sustainability of programs that increased capacity in Year One.
