Eligible entities are government, nonprofit, or for-profit groups serving the region, including Beltrami, Cass, Clearwater, and Hubbard counties. Eligible expenses include security features, staffing a child care program, incentives for new providers, and assistance for existing providers that struggled through the COVID-19 pandemic.
A total of $157,500 will be available for up to $22,500 per award. Proposals are due on Aug. 13, and grants will be awarded around Sept. 17.
