Submitting Letters of Interest

Interested applicants may submit Letters of Interest (LOI) for review. Those moving to the next round will be asked to complete a more detailed application. Various stakeholders, partners, and experts in childcare across the state will make decisions regarding awards.

Letters of Interest will open late 2024. Please keep an eye on this page for future updates!
