About Grant County

 Grant County is located in west central Minnesota and encompasses a terrain of low rolling hills dotted with lakes and agricultural land. The county was created in 1868 and named after the Civil War General and eighteenth President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. The 2021 census reported 6,050 residents living in the county.

Grant County is experiencing a lack of child care access, which negatively impacts employment, income, and the vitality of the community. Families may need to stay at home, increase their travel time to access child care, or utilize nontraditional means to access child care in order to ensure a sustainable workforce.  To support workforce development, retention, and economic growth, Grant County is participating in the Rural Child Care Innovation Program to explore and implement local and right-sized solutions to address child care shortages.
