Historically all RCCIP activities have been held in-person. With the pandemic we have developed systems to adapt the RCCIP process so it can be done in-person, virtually or a combination of both. Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis by the core team lead and First Children’s Finance staff depending upon regulations and the current situation with the pandemic.
RURAL CHILD CARE INNOVATION PROGRAM
By mobilizing and empowering rural communities the landscape of early care and education thrives in rural America.
The Rural Child Care Innovation Program (RCCIP), funded by MN Department of Human Services, is an initiative of First Children’s Finance to address the challenges of rural child care in Greater Minnesota through the lens of rural economic development.
The RCCIP uses a community engagement process designed to develop right-sized solutions to increase the supply of high quality affordable child care in Minnesota’s rural communities.
