Child Care

Partner Up!

The Partner Up! grant program will provide $10 million in funding to support partnerships between businesses who purchase slots at existing regulated child care providers. The funding will be awarded based on existing community child care needs throughout Wisconsin. The funding from this program can be used to increase staff compensation, pay expenses, reserve child care slots for local business employees, improve the quality of a child care program, and more.

Applications are currently closed, but more funding may be available in July 2022.

Eligibility

Businesses and child care providers who want to help sponsor the cost of their employees’ child care are eligible to apply.

Note: Governmental entities are not eligible for Partner Up! grants.
