Child Care Resiliency Fund Round 2

First 5 Sonoma is please to announce the second round of funding for the Sonoma County Child Care Resiliency Fund.

The goal of the Sonoma County Child Care Resiliency Fund is to ensure that child care businesses remain open or re-open in the midst of the pandemic. One-time grants to licensed and license-exempt child care providers that meet specific eligibility criteria (see below) can be used to address a broad range of needs to support the continued operation of a child care program.

The Fund is a collaborative funding partnership between the City of Santa Rosa, Community Foundation Sonoma County and First 5 Sonoma County.

Deadline to apply is Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 5:00 pm.
