North Dakota has announced new stabilization grants for child care providers.

The North Dakota Department of Human Services is encouraging all licensed or regulated North Dakota child care providers to apply for the federally funded stabilization and recovery grants from now through August 2022.

The types of grants include stabilization, health and safety facility improvement, technology, inclusion, start-up and quality improvement.

"These grants, which we previewed last month at the Let's Chalk 0 to 5 event, give North Dakota the opportunity to invest in the long-term stability of our child care sector," Department Executive Director Chris Jones said. "We have focused a number of grants on building capacity and quality child care for infants and toddlers as this remains an area of high need."

North Dakota licensed group, family and center child care programs and self-declared child care programs can apply for grants at https://www.ndgrowingfutures.org .
