Special Accommodation Grant Request for Application (RFA) Opportunity

The Child Development Division (CDD) is seeking to award Special Accommodation Grants (SAG) to one (1) or more Vermont Licensed Specialized Child Care Programs to support a child or children's safe and successful inclusion within the child care program through the hiring of a qualified assistant. The requirements and process for applying for Special Accommodations Grants have changed to meet federal and state regulations.  

Child Care Programs seeking to apply for funding through a Special Accommodation Grant will need to review the Request for Application for detailed information on the grant requirements and how to submit them.  Please read the submission instructions; the application forms should be sent in their original pdf fillable format. We will not accept scanned documents.

Contingent on the availability of funds, there will be two more application rounds. 

Deadline for 2nd Round of Special Accommodation Grants: February 10, 2021

Deadline for 3rd Round of Special Accommodation Grants: March 10, 2021
