(Lincoln County, OR – 4.7.2023)

Lincoln County is pleased to announce the following opportunity for Lincoln County based child care providers:

Lincoln County Board of Commissioners, through American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding, is looking to support Lincoln County based child care providers through grants, for either the expansion of existing child care operations or the creation of new child care businesses, in order to increase child care availability in our communities. The total amount allocated to this grant is $100,000. Eligible child care providers can apply for up to $15,000 for eligible expenses. Details on eligible expenses are provided within the application. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis from April 10, 2023 until all funds are expended or until the ending of ARPA funding in 2026, whichever comes first. Applications will be reviewed by a committee made up of child care business experts and advocates. Recommendations from the committee will go to the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners for discussion and approval. Questions about this grant can be directed to Shanelle Parks at sparks@co.lincoln.or.us
