Hi I'm Laura from and I'm going to talk about how to write child care grants. If you are a child care center or a school for young children there are some grants that you are eligible for, literacy, early education grants, or health and welfare grants that might help you support the families whose children are coming to your center so you'll want to follow the guidelines for these proposals. In general whoever the funder is, whether it is the Federal Government or a foundation, they'll provide you with a list of the guidelines that they need to see. Be sure to follow them to the letter. You may want to have several versions of the proposal as you get closer to matching the guidelines and have someone review and make sure that you are really aligned with these guidelines. Generally they are going to want to see a statement of need and then a project or a description of the proposed project then a plan of how you are going to do that schedule of work and perhaps a budget. They may want bios for the key personnel who are going to be involved in the project and maybe letters of support from people who you have worked with or who are going to be part or kind of your partners in this project. So those are some of the main components that they are going to want to see in the grant. You will also probably need to have some financial statements from the past years and your 50 C3 certificate that shows that you are a 501C3 so you can gather some of these different appendices together and then do the writing again, falling in line with what the guidelines are that they have laid out for you, use as many details as you can and also be sure to use statistics so if you are serving 42% of a student body is eligible for free lunch you will want to include statistics like that. Those are some of the things to think about when you are writing a child care grant.
