Indiana early learning and child care providers can now receive some extra help in reopening following the pandemic.
A $15.7-million grant fund was launched Thursday by Early Learning and Lily Endowment.
License and registered centers, ministries and family child care home providers can apply for grants up to $40,000 to help with safety-related challenges and expenses. Grant amounts will be determined based on the number of children served.
Providers must serve children between the ages of 0-5 and be a Paths to QUALITY Level 3 or 4 provider or a Level 2 provider that has committed to reaching higher levels of quality in due course.

Early Learning Indiana also invites others to contribute to the fund to help make more grants possible.
