About East Grand Forks
East Grand Forks, located in the Red River Valley region, has a population around 9,176. The community
includes the city as well as the hinterlands of Northwest Minnesota. Agriculture is the top industry,
along with other business that serve the needs of agriculture, such as insurers and financial institutions.
East Grand Forks has an approximate need of 210 full-time child care slots, with a large need for infant
and toddler care. The inadequate supply of child care is preventing people from entering the workforce,
as potential workers are unable to find child care in the area. Increasing the number of child care slots
will make it possible for more people to participate in the labor market.
