Work Toward Shared Goals with Project Growth
Partner Up! Grant Program
The Wisconsin Department of Children & Families Partner Up! grant program will provide $10 million in funding to support partnerships between essential businesses who purchase slots at existing regulated child care providers. The funding will be awarded based on existing community child care needs throughout Wisconsin. The funding from this program can be used to increase staff compensation, pay expenses, reserve child care slots for local business employees, improve the quality of a child care program, and more.
