Welcome to SPARK's Build, Learn, Grow Stabilization Grant Facebook Live for Family Child Care programs!

How many funding opportunities will be available?

How many times can a program apply for funds?

Thank you for the information. I will be researching the requirements and thinking seriously about the grant before applying.

How long does it take to make sure the application was ok and accepted? Mine said approved and the amount

Just want to let you know how much this is appreciated!!

Does all the first grant funds have to be used before we can apply for the second one in January?

if someone is planning to retire in 2022, and takes this first grant, when can that person retires and not have to return any of this money?

sorry to continue my personal question, but who determines and how is it determined if it has to be returned?

Will the money be deposited at the same time as CCDF payments?

Is there a way to modify the application once has been submitted ?

How many quarterly (3 months) payments do we receive through September 2023?

If I was licensed in May will there be another round of grants I’ll be eligible for?

I appreciate this grant ! Thank you

Hi Rosemary Milligan!

How many times do we apply for the grant?

Good afternoon

What if they are considered self employed ?

When will the 2nd round be open up?

Is this just for home daycare

Delia miramontes

Thanks

Will it be deposited the same week as CCDF?
