Additional Support for Child Care Providers

NJEDA Child Care Facility Improvement Program Grant Phase 2 for Registered Family Child Care Providers
The application for this program is expected to launch early summer 2024.

The NJ Child Care Facilities Improvement Program – Phase 2 is a pilot grant of $5 million to support New Jersey Registered Family Child Care homes (FCCs) with the purchase of furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FFE) that will contribute to Health, Safety and Accessibility and/or High-Quality Learning Environments. 

Family Child Care Homes (FCCs) are an essential component of the state’s child care mixed delivery system and help to meet the varied needs of New Jersey’s diverse population. FCCs are in the same neighborhoods where families live, provide culturally and linguistically appropriate care, flexible hours and often offer non-traditional hours. Investing in the quality of FCC facilities is essential to ensure that all families have access to these positive effects of quality child care. NJEDA aims to provide FCCs with support that promotes long-term stability and ensures that the child care environment that they provide is safe, healthy, accessible, and conducive to high-quality early learning.

Important Eligibility Information
FCCs must be a registered business with the NJ Department of Treasury and submit a Tax Clearance Certificate and formation documents before grants can be approved. If you are not a registered business already, we highly encourage providers interested in this grant to begin the process of registering their business now. The business registration process may take several weeks and with these documents in place before the application opens, it would allow your application to move more quickly through the approval process. Click here for more information on how to register your business.
