Friday, August 16, 2019
During the second quarter of 2019, the Northland Foundation awarded 42 grants totaling $389,835. Five grants of $10,000 were made to increase the supply of childcare openings in the region. The five childcare grants were awarded to help with the start-up four new programs that will be located in Eveleth, Aitkin, Duluth, and Hermantown, and to help expand an existing childcare program located in Virginia. The $50,000 in funding for these grants was provided by the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
“We are appreciative that the State of Minnesota has committed funding to help increase access to high-quality childcare in our region,” stated Tony Sertich, Northland Foundation’s President. “Solutions to the shortage of care can be found if public and private sectors – like the Northland Foundation – work together with local communities, and we continue to support the childcare providers who are already doing this incredibly important job.”
