Request MN Application

Rural Minnesota communities are invited to apply for the 2023-2024 process.  The number of communities accepted into the RCCIP process will be limited.  The application deadlines are:    

Round 1: Application Deadline is August 7, 2023, at 5:00 PM CST.   

Round 2: TBD - availability dependent on the number of communities served in the first round.  

While many communities have child care shortages, only some are ready to roll up their sleeves and embark on the journey to address this critical community issue.  Through this competitive process, First Children’s Finance will select communities who demonstrate commitment to the community engagement process over an 18-24 month period.
