Helping businesses secure affordable child care slots for their employees
The Partner Up! grant program will provide $10 million in funding to support child care for Wisconsin’s businesses.
Through Partner Up!, businesses can reserve subsidized slots in regulated local child care programs for their employees’ use. The employer will contribute part of the true cost of care for each slot reserved, and Partner Up! will contribute the remaining amount. Participating families will receive accessible, high-quality child care at little-to-no out-of-pocket cost to them.
Detailed information, including costs and eligibility, can be found on DCF’s Partner Up! webpage.
Partner Up! is a new grant program from the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families’ Project Growth, Supporting Families Together Association, and Wisconsin’s nine CCR&Rs.
