NJEDA Child Care Facilities Improvement Program Grant Survey
We would like to hear from child care providers by January 20th.

The NJ Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) is currently providing nearly $25 million in grants between $50,000-$200,000 for licensed child care programs under the Child Care Facilities Improvement Program. The grants will cover the costs of facility improvements that will contribute to high-quality early childhood learning environments. These interior and exterior improvements can include, but are not limited to, installing energy efficient windows, creating additional classroom space, purchasing new playground equipment, replacing flooring, remediating environmental hazards such as lead or mold, or putting in child-height sinks or toilets.

Advocates for Children of New Jersey(ACNJ) and the New Jersey Association for the Education of Young Children (NJAEYC) want to make sure that every available dollar goes towards improving child care facilities that serve young children. We are interested in your opinions on the opportunities and challenges in applying for and moving forward with such a grant.

This is a short ANONYMOUS survey and we want to hear from you --- whether you have applied, plan to apply or will not apply for the grant!

Please complete the survey as soon as possible but no later than Friday, January 20th!
