Foundation To Award Grants To Child Care Nonprofits
The Northern New York Community Foundation is awarding grant funding to nonprofits whose missions involve child care.
The foundation's LEAD Council is welcoming proposals from organizations in the tri-county area for part of a $25,000 award.
The council is made up of about 20 young professionals who will decide where the money goes. The foundation is looking to support quality child care and early childhood development.
"The grant came about because we wanted a more formal process to open the opportunity up to people and ask, 'What are your ideas? How can we help our community and support our young children,'" said Krysta Aten-Schell, of the Northern New York Community Foundation.
The deadline to submit grant proposals is April 19. The awards will be announced in September.
