Webinar Series: State of Illinois’ Child Care Grant
Join our webinar series to learn more about the State of Illinois’ Strengthen and Grow Childcare Grants
Provided by the State of Illinois, these new grants give licensed and eligible childcare centers access to quarterly funding to help maintain and grow operations. As the Cook County Small Business Source has worked with childcare providers interested in the grant, we saw the challenges providers faced while applying for this grant.
Join us for a three-part series that will guide you through the process—and help you access the funds you need to grow and thrive! The first session will provide an overview of the grant, the second session will focus on how to fill out the budget information needed for the application and the final session will be an opportunity for you to receive one-on-one assistance with your application.
Throughout the sessions, representatives from the Cook County Small Business Source, Women’s Business Development Center and Illinois Action for Children will walk you through the application and answer any questions you may have.
