Community Child Care Solutions Fund

The Community Child Care Solutions Fund (CCCSF) focuses on strategies to increase women’s economic security by decreasing the workforce gap through access to quality, affordable child care. The process operates on a different timeline and structure than IWF’s Core Grants Program, and various stakeholders, partners, and experts in child care in and around Iowa will make decisions regarding awards.

Letters of Interest (LOI) for the Community Child Care Solutions Fund will be accepted from June 15, 2019 – August 1, 2019.

Interested applicants may submit Letters of Interest (LOI) on letterhead detailing the project by August 1. All LOI’s will be reviewed and each applicant will be notified by September 1 of their status. Those moving to the next round will be asked to complete a more detailed application. Selections will be made in November. Recipients will be invited to a check presentation in January. Funding is to be used in the 2020 calendar year.
