Early Care and Development Program Grants Announcement
The Vermont Legislature and Governor have approved money to fund Early Care and Development Program (ECDP) grants. Center Based and Family Child Care Homes that participate in VT STARS (at any STAR level) and provide services to to a high number of Child Care Financial Assistance Program eligible children, particularly Child Care Financial Assistance Program eligible infants and toddlers are eligible to receive funds.
The programs who receive the grants are determined using a formula determined by the legislature. Each quarter the Child Development Division (CDD) will use the formula to determine which programs receive the grants. The Child Development Division has determined the grant receipents for the first quarter (October) of payments, and the list of the programs is posted on the CDD website: http://dcf.vermont.gov/cdd/providers/grants/ecdp#October_Grantees
