Contract for services to a Utah nonprofit organization to create a program to assist child care providers. The purpose of the program is to assist child care providers with startup costs in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The successful applicant will be expected to create, implement, market, and manage the statewide grant program.

Utah 2022 Legislation, HB15, has given a directive to the DWS Office of Child Care to use COVID-19 Relief Funds to provide grants to eligible child care providers in order to assist with paying Startup costs associated with the provision of child care. DWS will provide a grant to a non-profit organization who will then create, implement, market and manage a statewide program that pays for startup costs to open or expand child care services for child care providers who establish a contract with businesses who are building child care options for their employees.

The Grantee will create a grant program that includes the application, approval and payment processes to provide Startup grants to child care programs who enter into a contract to provide child care for an employer’s employees. This can include on-site or off-site child care. The Grantee will market the program statewide, including outreach directly to large employers and child care programs near employee’s work locations.
