Reminder: Applications due Dec. 18 for Capital Projects Fund Accelerator grants

Organizations and entities have until 5 p.m. Dec. 18 to apply for $38 million in grants that will help expand on Kansas’ efforts to create new licensed child care slots while adding space to enable work, health monitoring and education supports. 

The Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund (KCCTF) will fund a limited number of projects for eligible participants through the Capital Projects Fund (CPF) Accelerator grant. 

Leaders from business, education and health sectors have joined with early childhood champions to strategize how to best meet the needs of their employees, patients and families. The accelerator project will build on those responses to construct spaces designed to provide a community-driven, holistic approach to meeting the unique needs of Kansas families with young children. 

Funding is intended for communities positioned to make transformational investments in coordinated solutions involving child care, employment, education and health monitoring, according to the All in for Kansas Kids website

The CPF Accelerator will offer construction-only support for communities to renovate facilities that reduce barriers to employment, education, health and child care. These community-driven projects will demonstrate concrete investments and opportunities for Kansas families to ensure the best start for children. 

A variety of organizations and entities, both public and private, can serve as the lead applicant for a CPF Accelerator project.  

Go to the Kansas CommonApp to apply.
