Raising Child Care Fund – Grant Opportunities & FAQs

On May 29th, ECFC hosted a webinar on grant opportunities available through the Raising Child Care Fund (RCCF), a new project of ECFC that will make private foundation resources available to grow public understanding and engagement to focus on the child care crisis in America. 

The RCCF has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to support groups dedicated to lifting up the voices of parents, child care teachers, family child care providers, and allies to tell their stories and be effective advocates in calling for and developing a solution to this crisis. 

The webinar described the  RCCF goals, RFP and application process, and addressed frequently asked questions.  See below for webinar archive information.
