Grant for 2016

25 months

To expand the Greater Than MN Project to North Dakota and additional rural Minnesota communities linking child care and rural economic development

The Big Idea

Reliable access to quality, affordable childcare is a challenge for many low-income families in rural Minnesota and North Dakota. Meanwhile, childcare businesses—and the economic stability they offer to employees, working parents, and whole communities—are often overlooked as critical pieces of economic development. First Children's Finance will engage with partners to strengthen existing and emerging childcare businesses.
