Child Care Grants on the Way

Today, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) has launched the latest round of Child Care Economic Development Grants. These grants authorize $5 million over the next two fiscal years for grants to local communities like Bemidji to increase quality child care providers to support economic development across Minnesota. A total of $2.5 million will be available in this first round with a second round of funding being available before June 2022.
