Together with the Child Development Division, Vermont Afterschool is now accepting applications for a third round of (Mini) Room For Me Grants! Applications for awards up to $10,000 will be accepted on a rolling basis until all $150,000 in grant funds have been awarded. Apply now while funds last!
The Mini Room For Me Grant is designed to maintain the amount of school-age child care slots that are available or have newly opened across Vermont. Regulated child care programs and providers that accept Child Care Financial Assistance are eligible to apply. Current and past Room For Me Grantees are also eligible to apply for this round of grants.
Projects can be maintenance work, repair work, quality improvement aligned with STARS. or other program needs. Funds are aimed at sustainability of slots for small projects that are already in the planning stages to maintain or mitigate impact on programs. We encourage applications with projects that are ready to be implemented and will help programs sustain slots and enhance quality.
