Financing Facilities

A coalition is presented of non-profit financial and Technical Assistance (TA) intermediaries involved in planning, developing, and financing facilities for low-income child care and Head Start programs. Grantees looking for new funding resources to support their goals and objectives will find this information useful.

Over the last decade, recognition of the need for high-quality child care has grown exponentially for all pre-school children, but particularly for low- and moderate-income children. The increase in the number of working parents, the changes in welfare legislation from a purely support to a welfare-to-work philosophy, as well as new Federal and State education requirements for students of all ages, have underscored the importance of safe, caring, affordable environments in which young children can receive quality care and preparation to begin school ready to learn. Increasing numbers of early care and education providers are requesting information and financing assistance to be able to participate in these expansion opportunities.

Members of the National Children's Facilities Network are located across the country and may be able to provide assistance in:

  • Financing for real estate development
  • Technical assistance in business planning, real estate development, application for financing
